I was wondering what animal Shuckle could be based off of. My guess is that it's supposed to be a turtle, but I'm not sure.

Shuckle is a Pokémon that resembles a small turtle. Its body is yellow and appears soft. Until they are in use, Shuckle's limbs appear limp. It is encased in a very hard red shell that has many holes in it. The holes in its shell are rimmed with white. Rather than actively hunting and foraging for food like most other Pokémon, it collects Berries and stores them in its shell. The Berries inside are liquefied and fermented by Shuckle's digestive juices, which it then consumes. These juices are also used to dissolve rocks so Shuckle can hide under them. It can be found in the mountains.

Shuckle seems to be based on an endolith, an organism that lives inside porous rocks or animal shells or possibly an abalone.

>Shuckle may be a combination of shuck (a husk or pod) and barnacle or turtle.
Tsubotsubo may derive from 壷 tsubo (jar) and 富士壺 fujitsubo (barnacle).

Shuckle is mainly based off a turtle but here is some more info

Shuckle seems to be based on an endolith, an organism that lives inside porous rocks or animal shells or possibly an abalone. Fungi, also known as mold, are common endoliths; this explains why Shuckle is the mold Pokémon. It may also be based on scale insects – small, shelled parasites that produce a sweet fluid called honeydew that attracts other insects. Shuckle may have been based on a variety of mollusks, as it shares some characteristics with them. Some examples of the similar characteristics are the shell, muscular and limp-seeming feet, the use of acids to receive food or to break down obstacles, likes fermented foods, and both also live close to the water. It may also be based on turtles or tortoises, appearance-wise.
