A turtle in Python is sort of like a turtle in the real world. We know a turtle as a reptile that moves round very slowly and carries its house on its back. In the world of Python, a turtle is a small, black arrow that moves slowly around the screen. Actually, considering that a Python turtle leaves a trail as it moves around the screen, it’s actually less like a turtle and more like a snail or a slug. The turtle is a nice way to learn some of the basics of computer graphics, so here, we’ll use a Python turtle to draw some simple shapes and lines.
