Turtles are the indigenous people of the Land of Light and Rain. They are pink in color and stand on two legs. They are Rose's Consorts. They seem to fear Rose and sweat in her presence, possibly because of the callous disregard she has for their lives and property.
Some of them appear to live in a large pink temple with a turtle shell on top, which Rose destroys in order to search the inside.
Unlike the Salamanders (glub), Crocodiles (nak) and Iguanas (thip), the turtles don't seem to make any particular noise, although this could just be because they were too busy being terrified of Rose.
