turtle.clone() function in Python

  • Last Updated : 21 Jul, 2020

The turtle module provides turtle graphics primitives, in both object-oriented and procedure-oriented ways. Because it uses Tkinter for the underlying graphics, it needs a version of Python installed with Tk support.

turtle.clone()

The turtle.clone() method is used to create and return a clone of the turtle with the same position, heading, and turtle properties. This method does not require any argument.

Syntax :

turtle.clone()

Below is the implementation of the above method with an example in two ways for better understanding :

Example 1: Without Cloning

Python3




# import package
import turtle
  
  
# make first turtle object
tur1=turtle.Turtle()
  
# set turtle properties
tur1.width(5)
tur1.color("red")
  
# move it
tur1.circle(50)
  
# make another turtle object
tur2=turtle.Turtle()
  
# move it
tur2.circle(-50)

Output :

Example 2: With Cloning

Python3




# import package
import turtle
  
  
# make first turtle object
tur1=turtle.Turtle()
  
# set turtle properties
tur1.width(5)
tur1.color("red")
  
# move it
tur1.circle(50)
  
# make another turtle object
tur2=turtle.Turtle()
  
# cloning the properties of 
# first turtle object
tur2 = tur1.clone()
  
# move it
tur2.circle(-50)

Output :

Here we can find that in first output second turtle (tur2) is not having any property as the first turtle (tur1). To get this we have to set these properties again. But turtle.clone() method gives the advantage to clone properties of one turtle object to another as we can see in the second output.
