The bug crawled over to my friend, and we both hadn’t seen anything like it. She immediately noticed what looks like a turtle on the back of the bug, while the edges are semi-translucent. We brought it outside and it disappeared shortly after.

Obviously the Clavate Tortoise Beetle is aptly named if you thought it resembled a turtle.
