365 Project, Day 110

Flotsam Turtle

It's large sail, used to navigate the ocean winds, can be deflated by routing the blood away and folding the spines back. In this state, it can often be mistaken as a piece of flotsam. 

The Flotsam Turtle will often feed on sea animals that live near the surface and will also eat any vegetation that it floats near. Instead of having it's shell on the topside like it's normal land cousins, the Flotsam Turtle actually has it's shell underneath, to protect itself from the ambush predators of the sea.
