WoW Hunter Pets: Turtle Hunter Pet Family

Similar in appearance but much greater in size than tortoises in real life, World of Warcraft pet turtles come in many different colors and varieties and can often be found near shallow water or nearby on the shore. Characterized by their shell shield ability, turtles make excellent pets for WoW hunters requiring tanking due to their very high armor rating and low DPS.
