Turtle Vs Tortoise (A Glance)


Did you know that turtles are tortoises but not all tortoises are turtles? The term "turtle" is commonly used to refer to any reptile with a shell on its back, but there are several distinctions between these two distinct creatures.

World Turtle Day is May 23, and the zoo is excited to raise awareness and share ways that we can all help turtle and tortoise conservation. It's critical to understand the differences between these shelled reptiles in order to assist this animal.

  • Turtles have thinner, more water-dynamic shells than tortoises, which have more rounded and domed shells. Turtle shells are more streamlined, which helps with swimming.
  • Tortoises spend the majority of their time on land, whereas turtles are adapted for a life spent in water.
  • Tortoise forelegs are club-like, and the hind legs are 'elephantine.' Because tortoises are frequently larger and heavier, their elephantine hind legs aid in movement and weight support!
  • Turtles will have more flipper-like legs or webbed feet to help them navigate the water.
