Save Tortoises and Turtles – Need of the hour – Save earth

I’ve seen a lot of people getting confused between a turtle and a tortoise.

Here you go.

Turtles can swim. They live in water most of the time. They have webbed feet.


Tortoises cannot swim. They can be found only on land. They usually have 4-5 toes.


This trivial information can save their lives as there have been cases where people mistake a tortoise for a turtle and release them into the sea. The tortoises end up drowning.

Spread the word. 🙂
