I just think that turtles are way better than koalas. Nuff said.

Con

I accept, and I disagree with the statement that turtles are better than koalas. There are several reasons to this claim.

First, koalas are marsupials. Only incredibly cool animals hold their young in their pouches; turtles simply abandon their young and let them perish on their quest to the ocean.

Second, koalas have developed a strong taste for eucalyptus leaves, something that the majority of animals cannot consume. This in itself is enough to show that koalas are better than turtles.

Finally, koalas are able to climb trees. Literally climb trees. Turtles can barely crawl across the ground. Trees > Ground, therefore koalas are better than turtles.

I would have expanded on this debate, but the time limit was only 10 minutes...

Also, here are a few sources, so I should get points for sources.

Arguments may go to me, depending on who you think had better arguments.

I would also state that my opponent misspelled "enough" and instead resorted to spelling "nuff." This should give me spelling and grammar points.

Thanks for reading, and vote con!
