The Jungle Turtle is a harmless critter that spawns in or near a body of water on the surface Jungle at any time. Like its Forest counterpart, it moves slowly on land and swims at the surface of water. The Jungle Turtle has only 5 health and no defense, and can be damaged by other enemies and players.

The Jungle Turtle can be caught with any Bug Net to be carried around in the inventory and released later, or crafted into animated decorative furniture (Jungle Turtle Cage). Once crafted, the Jungle Turtle cannot be released again, unless the furniture item is de-crafted via Shimmer(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions).

The Jungle Turtle can be spawned by the Turtle Statue, however statue-spawned critters cannot be caught with any Bug Net, and will disappear in a puff of smoke when the player attempts to do so.
