The tortoise is now a protected animal in many countries having been caught as a pet in huge numbers for many years. Perhaps the popularity of this tiny animal is because that it has associations with strength and immortality. In many cultures the tortoise is believed to possess qualities that are associated with central themes of faith. The Chinese view the animal as a revered creature, and in North America First Nation beliefs the tortoise is a revered creature too as it is believed to support the world, with earthquakes being a sign that it is moving.
