Leonardus chelonia, otherwise known as sea turtles, are one of four Cheloniidae found in Stranded Deep. They can be found dwelling in most parts of the ocean, and are harmless to the player.

The player is able to kill a Leonardus chelonia with any cutting tool, such as a pocket knife. However, the turtle's corpse is currently of little use to the player, and cannot be consumed or cooked.

Currently, the Leonardus chelonia cannot climb out of the water to nest on beaches.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • It was possible to kill any turtle while it was not within striking distance by holding down the 'use' button (LMB by default) after the initial strike. This also applied to most sea fauna, excluding small fish.
    • As of v0.03.H2, this method has been patched, and is now ineffective.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The turtle's scientific name, Leonardus chelonia, and the names of all of the other sea turtles in the game (Raphaelus, Michelangelus and Donatellus) are direct references to Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raphael and Donatello, characters from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series, who were in turn named after famous artists Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raphael and Donatello, respectively.
