Though it was not a large amount, she gobbled up what was there. Since this turtle seemed to really like this orange fruit, more cantaloupe was left on the rind for her to enjoy. Eventually, her shell became a beautiful orange colored from her devouring so much cantaloupe. Hence, Myrtle the Orange Turtle.”
