The Tkinter library folder \lib-tk contains a module called turtle. You can import this module and experiment with turtle graphics. Tell the turtle to move and draw circles, lines, rectangles and more, and watch it, as it performs on a Tkinter canvas. In typical turtle fashion it moves at its own animated speed.
