Most turtles hatch before all of the yoke from the egg has been absorbed, that spot is where the yoke was attached.  When they get bigger that spot usually goes away completely, along with the little spike on their nose for breaking through the egg.

Yeah an egg is kind of a detachable, single use, womb-unit.

Very cool, I didn't know that!

Certain baby birds also have yoke sacs still attached when they hatch.

It's the escape hatch for the children that he is a friend everywhere to! Hah?! Ooohhhh!

What?  That doesn't look anything like a little human girl!  Ah, OK, so I watched Monsters Inc. last night.  The new 3D release is awesome BTW...
