Question: What kind of joint permits the turtle to hide its neck inside its shell? I know there are several joints such as: pivot joint, ball and socket joint, hinge joint, saddle joint, etc...... would it be something like the saddle join?

Answer: There is no "joint" per say, but they coil their head into their shell, kinda like how a snake can coil. Their neck is in an "S" shape inside their shell.
