McSnurtle is a turtle owned by Iris West-Allen and Barry Allen.


McSnurtle was given to Barry Allen and Iris West at their new home by Harrison Wells as a housewarming gift.[1]

Following the damage the apartment sustained during the Speed Force storm, McSnurtle's status is unknown.[2]


According to H.R. Wells, McSnurtle can bite people. It is unknown if she bites everyone or if she had a dislike for H.R.[1]
