The Tortoise and the Hare, is one of Aesop's Fables and later, fable by La Fontaine's which is a version of the former.

The Aesop's version fable tells the story of a race between a tortoise and a hare. The hare is very confident of winning, so it stops during the race and falls asleep. The tortoise continues to move very slowly but without stopping and finally it wins the race. The moral lesson of the story is that you can be more successful by doing things slowly and steadily than by acting quickly and carelessly.

France - 1995:

Monaco - 1971:

"Byeol Ju Bu Jeon" is a Korean folktale from the 7th century. The tale resembles Aesop's fable "The Tortoise and the Hare" in that both tales feature a turtle and rabbit as the principal characters, but the setting, morals, and political implications of the stories are quite different.

Quote:
As the story goes, the Dragon King, the king of the sea, was deathly ill. His subjects suggest that a hare's liver could cure him, yet none of them are brave enough to venture onto land to get the liver— that is, until the turtle volunteers. Once ashore, the turtle finds a rabbit and persuades him to visit the underwater kingdom, where great riches, beauty, and honor—the turtle claims—await. The rabbit agrees.

Back underwater, in the audience of the Dragon King, the rabbit is restrained and regretfully informed that he must sacrifice his liver (and his life) to save the king. The rabbit cleverly tells them that he would be honored to help save the king's life but has left his liver in the woods.

Rabbits, he tells the king, knowing the value of their livers, hide them aboveground in secret places. The hare says that he would be honored to retrieve it and give it over to the king if the king would send the turtle to escort him. The Dragon King is won over by this cavalier flattery and sends them back. Once on shore, the rabbit runs safely away from the turtle, telling him that they will never get his liver, that they were fools to believe him, and that the Dragon King will just have to die. Then he vanishes.

This set, shows the legend, was issued by North Korea on December 25, 1982:

On September 28, 2018 Honduras issued a three-value set of domestic animals (pets) stamps as its America (UPAEP) issue. The 30 lempira value of set depicts a pond slider (Trachemys scripta), a turtle which is endemic to the southeastern USA, but which has been introduced to many parts of the world through the pet trade. These turtles can live up to 40 years in captivity, but they are frequently released into the wild when they become large/adults.

From animaldiversity.org, "Slider turtles are a prolific invasive species, and there is more concern surrounding their presence in many locations rather than their threatened status."
