Turtlesauruses (known simply as Turtles, Tortoises or Tortoisesauruses) are a species of reptiles which existed during the Stone Age featured in the franchise of The Flintstones.


Turtlesauruses were reptiles with a single horn on the top of their heads, stair-like ridges on their necks, green skin, tails and bony shells. Because their shells were integral parts of their bodies, they could not exit it.


According to the franchise of The Flintstones and the book, The Flintstones' Wacky Inventions, Turtlesauruses were commonly used such as tire jacks for fixing cars, including the Flintmobile for example, drum sets, phonographs and record players for playing music, Tortoise Combo Washers for washing dirty dishes, Porto-Tortoise Phones, Tortoise Satellite Dishes, and other uses.


They were also edible for food and cuisine, including the dried turtle egg yolks that were used as an ingredient for Shlump, Dino's favorite pet food from the episode, "The X-Ray Story" for example.
