(MO > Felix Malmenbeck, 8/03/2012):  Maltz told me about a Klingon animal that's kind of turtle-like called a {la'SIv}.  So maybe turtle is {tera' la'SIv}.

lung 		*loong* (type of lizard-like animal); lizard (n)
nagh DIr 	shell (of an animal) (n)

“Once,” said the Mock Turtle at last, with a deep sigh, “I was a real Turtle.” (Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland)
