Why in Database: This series consists of three seasons (here also called “books”), is also characterized by an interesting form of creation of fauna. Most of the animals in this world are a combination of two animals from our world – we are primarily interested in such cases as TurtleDuck, Lionturtle and Turtleseal.

The turtle related animals appears in the following episodes:
Season 1:
Ep. 12, The Storm – Aang (main character) mentions being discovered to be an Avatar – he chose four toys that belonged to his previous incarnations. One of these toys is a small turtle figurine.
Ep. 19-20, The Siege of the North – Turtleseals are visible (in several scenes).
Season 2:
Ep. 07, Zuko Alone – In the scene showing Zuko’s memories, turtleducks are shown, their name is also mentioned in the dialogue.
Ep. 10, The Library – Aang finds a drawing of a lionturtle in the library and mentions its name.
Ep. 15, The Tales of Ba Sing Se – In one scene, a Turtlesea is briefly shown.
Season 3:
Ep. 01, The Awakening – It is shown (but “in the present time”) how Zuko spends his time at the pond with turtleducks.
Ep. 04, Sokka’s Master – There is a rich lionturtles symbolism, in the form of door knockers and sculptures. In addition, this animal is mentioned in the dialogue.
Ep. 05, The Beach – As in the above case, but much smallery, it is only a knocker referring to a lionturtle.
Ep. 18-21, Sozin’s Comet – The Lion Turtle appears personally (and is also mentioned by name) in this episode, it is a huge animal with a whole regular forest on its shell, if you include the scenes where Aang explores this forest, the lion turtle is shown for a considerable amount of time. “In its full splendor” is shown for much shorter time.
