Compressional stresses applied to the dorsal and ventral surfaces are distributed widely and are then borne upon buttress-like vertical supporting pillars of bone that are at each end of the ‘bridge’ that joins the carapace to the plastron on each side. The strength of their shells is further enhanced by the curved shape and by additional internal struts that distribute compressive forces so that they are not concentrated onto a single focus.
