Check out the House of the Turtles at the Maya ruins of Uxmal. What did the turtle signify, or mean, to the Maya? Why was the turtle an important creature?
Also, I make a big mistake in the video — I say that the region does not get a lot of rain, but it does. It just doesn’t have any rivers or lakes that the Maya could have used as a source of freshwater.
Do you see the turtles carved into the building above the columns?
