They're from Peru. They're ceramic. They're handpainted. The hole is nape to belly. Almost an inch and a quarter from the tip of her nose to her tail. These are great. They have the front legs of a sea turtle, the shell of a painted turtle but the dark malevolent feel of the snapping turtle. If you've never had fearful summer days when the rumor of a huge snapper in the brook took away your childhood fun for days, well, you were too close to the city or too close to a phone. Some of the PCB holes will take a 2mm cord, some just close to a 2mm cord.
