Tortoise & the Hair Box Designed in 1990

IMG_0703“The Tortoise and the Hare” is one of Aesop’s Fables and is numbered 226 in the Perry Index.[1] The account of a race between unequal partners has attracted conflicting interpretations. It is itself a variant of a common folktale theme in which ingenuity and trickery (rather than doggedness) are employed to overcome a stronger opponent.

 

Alligator Snapping Turtle Designed in 1991

This turtle is designed after a Alligator snapping turtle. They live in deep rivers, lakes and occasionally in ponds and brackish water. One of the largest fresh water turtles in the world. The head is massive, with a strongly hooked jaw and very long tail. It uses its tongue as a movable lure.
