Scientists have invented a new animal: the furtle.
Furtles are a cross-breed between mammals and turtles. They combine the pleasantness of a turtle with the furriness of a furry mammal (whales don't count). Furtles are furrier than chinchillas or Kevin Jonas. They are not gross like rats or little sisters. They can be taught tricks, like 'roll over', 'retract into shell' and 'sing aria'. They are very smart, so they are easy to take care of; they clean their cages themselves. They like to eat tomatoes. Furtles do not have lips. Furtles are the best type of pet.
