A project mascot is certainly a great idea. In my opinion a mascot and a logo 
have different purposes and can beautifully complement each other. The logo 
stands for the product and has to follow certain rules in its design. A 
mascot, on the other hand stands more for the whole community and can create 
ties between several projects much more easily.

I was going to suggest a hedgehog (it's likeable, generally favours security 
over speed, and knows to protect itself), but a terrapin sounds great. Now I 
just have to find out the difference between a terrapin and a turtle…
