Before starting to issue move commands we can create a turtle object. We can give this object a name, and define a turtle-like shape.
It's done like this:
tom = turtle()
These three lines will create a turtle called Tom, with a real turtle shape, filled with a bright red colour.
We can command Tom to move around the around the screen just as before, like this:
Next time I'll show you how to control two turtles at once for some synchronised stomping.
