A turtle shell is a unique helmet player can make from scutes that are dropped from baby turtles. Once the turtle shell is made, it can then be used as a helmet item in Minecraft.
The helmet provides a total of 2 points of armor, the same amount of protection as an iron, chain, and golden helmet - the turtle helmet will also help players breath better underwater.
Turtle helmets also have twice the amount of durability of all three of the other helmets, with a total of 275, thus making it a more durable item to use.
You can also use the turtle shell to make the potion of the turtle master via a brewing stand. The potion of the turtle master is a unique potion that can be used to slow both mobs and players down and weaken the total damage they can do.

If you turn the potion into a lingering version, you can also use it to make arrows of the turtle master. These arrows will have the same effect as the potions but can be fired at hostile mobs or players to cause them to get the effect.
How to make a Turtle Shell in Minecraft?
To make a turtle shell in Minecraft, you will need to gather scutes. Scutes are items dropped from baby turtles when they grow into adult turtles. You can find baby turtles usually in a beach biome, and if you feed it seagrass, you can make it grow into an adult.
When it grows up, it will leave behind one scute as a drop. Because of this, you will need to breed a total of six baby turtles in order to get six scutes to make a Turtle Helmet.
