Print the entire list

print(turtles)

Print a specific item from the list (starts counting at 0)

print(turtles[1])

Remove an item from the list

turtles.pop(1)

Add an item to the list

turtles.append("splinter")

Creating a dictionary

turtles = {'michelangelo':'party dude', 'raphael':'cool, but rude', 'leonardo':'leader', 'donatello:'geek'}

Print a specific item from the dictionary

print(turtles['donatello'])

Delete an item from the dictionary

del turtles['michelangelo']

Add an item to the dictonary

turtles["shredder"] = "mean dude"
