Why in Database: A girl who is one of the protagonists of the film gets a toy turtle for her birthday. It is clearly visible in the scenes at the table. In addition, there is dialogue about turtles, about how they hide their heads and paws in their shells and wait for the threat that scared them (who thinks it is a stone) to go away.
He’s hiding inside that shell putting its head in the shell and its arms and legs. And when the thing that’s scaring him goes like this… The turtle doesn’t come out so the thing that scares the turtle goes away coz it thinks it’s a rock.
