It's a Snapper! The way these things move, they never expose the weak part of their body!

Snappers are turtle-like enemies found in Woodfall Temple and the Woods of Mystery. Their shells provide them with great defense, leaving only their underbellies as their weak spots. They can be beaten with several strategies, including launching from a Deku Flower while as Deku Link to hit them from beneath, flipping them over with Goron Link's punches, or by using a Bomb to blast away their defenses.

Gekko, the Mini-Boss of the Woodfall Temple, rides a giant Snapper. After knocking him off his Snapper, Link must shoot him with the Hero's Bow as he crawls across the ceiling.
