Synonyms of "Tortoise" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between tortoise and turtle ?
A: A tortoise is a type of turtle which lives on land, while turtles are generally in the water. They both look similar but have different features.
Q: What is the difference between tortoise and turtle ?
A: Tortoises live on land, and turtles live in water.

Tortoises have features that are beneficial to land dwelling creatures such as rougher skin, larger and thicker "feet", and rounder shells (and bodies). They also tend to be duller in color (an adaptation for land-living).

Turtles, on the other hand, have features that are more suited to aquatic living such as more streamlined bodies, flatter + wider shells, smoother skin, and depending on the species smaller "feet" or just paddles altogether. They also tend to be more vibrant in color (an adaptation to aquatic living environments).

Again, depending on the species, each can and do go between land and water, however they predominantly reside in their respective areas. Both have beak-like mouths, however only one had a famous cartoon based on them (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 😉)

Sizes for each vary, depending on the specie. The giant green sea turtle can grow to massive sizes, whereas its river counterparts might be a smaller size.


Some example sentences:

"I really enjoyed seeing the [turtles] at the aquarium today."

"Did you see the rare specie of [tortoise] at the zoo?"
