Even bronze turtles have a textured shell with bumps and ridges and squarish shapes. Just like real turtles do. But if you’re a tortoise at the Knoxville Zoo where kids one right after another take turns riding you and posing for pictures and patting you good-bye, you’re not patterned at all. You’re smooth. Patternless, as it were. Yep. Smooth and loved.

To see this smooth tortoise, head to the Knoxville Zoo, 3500 Knoxville Zoo Drive, Knoxville, TN 37914; http://www.knoxville-zoo.org/
