The turtle (gui 龜) is an auspicious animal in ancient China. It is said in the book Zhongxuanji 中玄記 that a thousand years of turtle is able to communicate with humans.

A five thousand years old turtle is called shengui 神龜 "divine turtle", an animal older than ten thousand years is called linggui 靈龜 "Spiritual turtle".
