Turtles are some of the oldest living creatures on the planet, predating even crocodiles, with fossils found from over 200 million years ago. The shell of a turtle is actually part of its skeleton and grows with them as they age. One of the major threats to turtles are plastic bags, which look like their favourite food – jellyfish.
