Default tell me if you can slove this

yo, ive been on this koan for weeks now and i still aint grasp the meaning. most of the harder ones take years i hear, so tell me what yall think it means truthfully

"A monk saw a turtle in the garden of Daizui's monastery and asked the teacher, "All beings cover their bones with flesh and skin. Why does this being cover its flesh and skin with bones?" Master Daizui took off one of his sandals and covered the turtle with it."

the teacher showed a monk that turtle wears its shell just like man wears sandals. for extra protection or sumthin. so it's a proof that human learns from nature because turtles lived long before humans.

The teacher placed his sandal on the turtle to show why the turtle wears bones on the outside........so he won't get stepped on.....this shows how the turtle survives in it's surroundings, the sandal represents the shell that protects the turtle the way sandals protect are feet
