Good choice. Tommy and Tippy stayed low and crawled out on their hands and knees. Well, actually, Tippy just walked out the way a turtle normally would but he was so low to the ground that he provided a good example.
By staying low they avoided smoke inhalation and could see better. This saved their lives.
Just look how they are smiling! Normally when your house is burning down around you, it's a rather distressing situation, but if you know the basics of fire safety and you have a fire turtle at your side, it's not half bad!
