It's Not World Turtle Day Without These Adorable Turtles

"You never really know, but when they know, you'll know? You know?"

There's your daily quote from the notorious Disney comedy Finding Nemo. Who doesn't like some Crush the sea turtle and Dory the blue tang fish?

Back to our point. Do you know what today is? World Turtle Day! It's celebrated on May 23 each year and sponsored by the American Tortoise Rescue.

The day was created as an annual observance to celebrate turtles and protect them and their disappearing habitats around the world, according to the World Turtle Day website.

So we just HAD to make your day with some of these cute turtle tweets. And maybe even learn a few facts about these ridiculously cool reptiles. Enjoy!

He's swimmin' away!
