The default turtles will rotate depending on which way they are moving. But if they are changed to another shape (like car, or leaf, or sheep) they always face the same direction regardless of the direction they are moving. Is there a way to change this?

Some turtle shapes (like "sheep" or "car") are marked as "not rotatable", so they always appear to point same direction, even though actually the turtle's HEADING is pointing different directions. (This is usually because they look funny when the car turns upside down.)

This is a property of each shape, and you can change it in the "Turtle Shapes Editor" by checking or unchecking the "rotatable" checkbox.
