"The Symbolic Meaning of the Turtle.

Sea turtles are more ancient than any other vertebrate animal: they watched the dinosaurs evolve and even become extinct. They survived the Earth's ages of ice and continue to flourish.

Through the ages and cultures, turtles have many meanings. Some believe the turtle is the symbol of the primal mother and connected to the lunar cycle.

In the Far East it was believed the shell was a symbol of heaven and the square underside was a symbol of earth. The turtle could help you unite heaven and earth within you own life.

Ancient myths describe the world as resting on the turtle's back.

Others believe the turtle is associated with longevity, great age, and wisdom.

The turtle's whole life is one of steadfastness of effort and patience. Slow and steady: A life of 'non-doing'. There is a saying "home is where the heart is". The turtle is always at home within itself. [...]"

ENGLISH
The Scimitar Oryx, or Scimitar-Horned Oryx, (Oryx dammah) is a species of oryx which formerly inhabited the whole of North Africa. Today conflicting reports exist as to whether it is extinct in the wild, or whether small populations survive in central Niger and Chad.

The Scimitar Oryx is just over a metre at the shoulder and weighs around two hundred kilograms. Its coat is white with a red-brown chest and black markings on the forehead and down the length of the nose. The horns are long, thin and parallel and curve backwards (like a scimitar) and can reach a meter to a meter and a quarter on both sexes, male and female.

CASTELLANO
El orix cimitarra u orix blanco (Oryx dammah), es equivalente sahariano del anterior y la única especie que posee cuernos curvos, que le dan nombre. Su aspecto es el usual, pero sus cuernos se curvan hacia atrás en forma de cimitarra y su pelaje, aunque blanco, es de color rojizo en patas, y cuello, mientras que la máscara facial es casi ausente.

Esta especie presenta la particuliaridad de que fue domesticada en el Antiguo Egipto como animal productor de carne. Eventualmente su domesticación cayó en desuso debido a la agresividad de la especie. Actualmente se distribuye por todo el territorio sahariano.
