Here we have another real turtle illustration on this coloring image. Unlike the extinct Archelon coloring page, this Eastern Box turtle is very much living and a slow-moving crawler having a long life. Fill the turtle with brown or black colors having patches or spots of yellow or orange colors.
Belonging to the order Chelonia, turtles are cold-blooded animals and are divided into two groups on the basis of how they are able to retract their necks back into their shells. If the head retracts straight back then it’s part of suborder Cryptodira, while those exhibiting lateral retractions are members of suborder Pluerodira.
Turtles have different shells on the upper and lower side of their body. The hardened upper shell is known as carapace, while the lower shell is termed as plastron. They are fused together to form the bridges of bony structures on the sides.
