It’s just like wiping a hard drive wiping and cleaning the detached turtles’ carapaces I’ve seen in a video shared and posted online. I have personally seen a detached carapace way back college years when we went to a turtle sanctuary in Davao City. But I have not tried myself cleaning and doing work with carapaces.
Anyway, what really are carapaces?
Carapaces are the hard part found at the upper or back part of turtles and tortoises. But theses can also be seen in other animals like arthropods specifically the shrimps, prawns and more. For the above mentioned animals, these carapaces serve as a protective structure for their body and for their head, or brain part.
