orthodontic bands Giant TortoiseWe saw this small 3 x 3 inch package on the street today, and wondered: how do they get a giant Galapagos tortoise in such a small package?

  1. I wear tortoise rubber bands on my braces. Before tortoise, I wore rhinoceros bands. The purpose of the animal on the package is for younger children with braces – it’s much easier for them to tell their orthodontist they need more tortoise or rhinoceros rubber bands than it is to have them remember a size.
