Did you know that turtles were one of the few animals which survived the Cretaceous Palaeogene extinction which wiped out dinosaurs from the surface of the earth? While dinosaurs became extinct, these die-hard species continued to adapt and survive even up till today. It is this same incredible animal that gracefully decorates this planter. Apart from helping keep the floor from getting wet after coming in while it is raining, the Umbrella Holder Turtle is also worthy of being used as a sole decorative ornament in homes and offices. It is 45 centimetres tall and has a flat base with which it would sit comfortably on any flat surface.
