I wonder why the turtles are walking so slow. It may be because he's legs muscle aren't strong.Or because he's shield is heavy or it just simply can't walk faster.

I searched this for you and found this: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Why_do_turtles_walk_slow. Its quite an interesting way to walk, it must be because of there shell, over time they must start to walk like that as not to hurt their legs.
