It is an exclusive and limited collector’s item.
The case turtle (Kinosternon scorpioides), also known as the scorpion shell, water morrocoy, tapaculo and broken-chested turtle, is a turtle of the kinosternidae family, which lives in lagoons and rivers of tropical America from Mexico to northern Argentina.
The shell is brown in color and measures between 15 and 18 cm in length, the males being larger. The head, legs and tail are grey. At the tip of its tail it has a nail, which is why it is internationally known as a scorpion turtle.
The plastron is yellowish, it is divided into three articulated sections, the central one fixed and the other two mobile, which allows it to enclose itself in its own box with a front and a rear cover, which protect its body when it feels in danger. This feature gives it its case name.
