  1. "Turtles have webbed feet" shows picture of turtle with flippers Just kidding mate. Very informative. Although I think scientifically speaking a tortoise is a kind of turtle. But that's not how the terms are mostly used.

    Edit: Woah, I didn't know asterisks now made text bold. Not what I meant to do.

  2. You forgot that tortise will drown if submerged and the biggest difference a tortise eats only plants aka herbivores where as turtle is an omnivore though prefer fish and squid as an adult.

  3. "Firstly, turtles."
    >Shows a picture of a terrapin
    Dude, that's not a turtle. That's clearly a terrapin. (Which are similar to tortoises and turtles, but are not the same thing.)

  4. My stepdad found a tortoise (at least i think so) when working.He found it because he was about to crush it and decided to grab him.My mom agreed to keep him.They both said it was a land turtle and i kept on insisting it was a tortoise mainly beacuse he/she dosen't have the feet turtles tend to have.

  5. I found tortoise in my pool after draining it. I didn't clean my pool right away and left it for 3 days. The day I wanted to clean it I found the tortoise got stuck on one of the pool steps. Poor thing, had been there for 3 days I guess. I was planning to release it at first but decided to keep it. I placed it in my temporary "aquarium", a 50lbs tote. Going to get a new UV light led and a new large aquarium for it.
