The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles come up against some real turtles!

How do they compare?

Michelangelo, Donatello, Leonardo and Raphael are returning to cinemas this summer!

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has to stop Shredder who has joined forces with a mad scientist Baxter Stockman and a couple of hopeless henchmen called Bebop and Rocksteady.

The super villains are planning on taking over the world and it’s up to the heroes in a half shell to stop them!

It’s not quite going to be that straightforward though as they soon bump into an even great evil, the notorious Krang!

The Turtles are definitely super well suited to fighting crime but how do they match up to their real life amphibian pals?

Well today is International Turtle Day!

So to celebrate we thought we’d see how they compare…
