I was rummaging through some old boxes trying to find my jar of black sand and found this turtle shell. Completely forgot I even had this! I found it by a creek behind my neighborhood when I was exploring the woods back in high school. At first I was really bummed out when I couldn’t find that missing piece on the top (which is called a scute and made of the same material as our fingernails and beaks and horns). But now I don’t mind so much because you can see the layer underneath. Also I love how on the inside you can see where his spine was attached.
