In western cultures, turtles are seen as symbols of patience and wisdom.
These animals are slow, yet very steady, and are seen as a symbol of perseverance as well.
They are also said to be symbols of fertility, as they lay a very large number of eggs.The shell of the turtle is hard and is a symbol of protection and strength.Since the turtle is able to escape the world in the comfort of its shell, a number of people identify themselves with this amphibian. Long life is another symbolization associated with turtles.
