I am a reptile well known for my hard shell and slow movement.

My shell inspired the Roman army with their “Testudo” (Latin for Tortoise) formation where they hold their shields above and around them. I can also live for a very long time, did you know both Charles Darwin and Steve Irvin cared for the same Tortoise?
