The Capoeira Turtles are minor neutral characters in Rio 2. They are among the applicants who entered Carla, Rafael, Pedro and Nico's "Amazon Untamed" audition. They were seen twice throughout the movie - at the audition and during the confrontation with the loggers. Only the male turtle speaks (Voiced by Jim Conroy).
The Capoeira Turtles were first seen introducing themselves to the four judges. They perform varieties of hand gestures and movement, all of which are done in extremely slow motion. Their performance lasts for so long that Nico, Carla, Rafael and Pedro go to sleep even before they could finish the show. The turtle couple ended up falling down to ground, likely to be disqualified from Amazon Untamed Carnival show.
Later, when the birds of Amazon Rainforest confront with the loggers to try to save their habitat, Rafael, Pedro, Nico and Carla drop them from the sky, precisely hitting the heads of two loggers. Once they are both on their feet, they go for high-five in their usual slow motion way. The hand gesture is completely executed by the time when all the loggers (except for Big Boss) are driven away.
