Mock Turtle

Mock Turtle is a character from the well-known book “Alice in Wonderland”. His name comes from a fake turtle soup, which was prepared on the basis of beef, not turtle – like many things in Carol’s work, also the name of this character is… a wonder. The way he is typically presented, as a combination of turtle and ox/cow, results directly from this.
