This is the dance of the turtle. There are slight differences between the turtle dance of Endau, Johor and the turtle dance of Pekan, Pahang.

Only one dancer performs the turtle dance of Endau while at Pekan more than two dancers perform it.

At Endau, the dance is accompanied by music of violin and gong.

Meanwhile, at Pekan, the dance is accompanied by music of bamboo drum, rebana, gong, gong kelapa (keketok) and serunai.

Turtle dance is quite a comical dance because of the imitation of turtle movements.

The dancers are usually male but female dancers can also perform it.

The performers wear complete Malay costumes.
