Turtles have shells which protect them.

Before we begin, I would like to ask what you mean by "best animal." I understand if turles are your favorite animals, but that would be opinion, not fact. If you mean "animals with best defense," I would say snakes and wild cats have the best defenses. If you mean "most beautiful animal," that would be a matter of opinon. My favorite animal is the Bald Eagle, but I believe that it is irrelevant to this debate.

they are the best out of any living thing

That is a matter of opinion, not fact. Turtles have a longer lifespan, generally, than nearly all other animals, yes, but turtles being the best animal is incorrect. All animals are beautiful in their own way.

Again, I am dealing with trolling. A previous debate of mine has been ruined because of this. I await my opponent's proper argument, one not based on opinion, but one based on fact. I will, however, be an optimist and ask this question: Why? You are going to lose the conduct points because of the trolling. Why would you do this?

My part in this debate is over. I hope the vote turns out well.

Thank you.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro failed to meet the burden of proof, as somewhat argued by Con, and began to post irrelevant things, before the end.
