Tama-Chan is the name of the flying hot springs turtle in the popular manga Love Hina by Ken Akamatsu. Given to Keitaro Urashima by Mutsumi Otohime on a trip to Okinawa, Tama-Chan enjoys spending time in the hot springs and flying around Hinata Sou. Kaolla Su and Mutsumi Otohime can apparently communicate with Tama Chan.
Koalla Su: I'm gonna cook Tama chan into turtle soup!
Maehara Shinobu: noooo!!!
