Someone who has the tendency to act like a turtle, especially in public. They are particularly noted for their ability to take many items and treat it as their shell.

The name is a new pronunciation of joining the words "the" and "spine" together. It is meant sarcastically, as the vast majority of turtle species do not have a spine
Why is that person trying to retract into that blanket? She is such a thespine.
