I love turtles but what is tortoise?
Tortoises and turtles are both reptiles from the order of Testudines, but in different classification families. The major difference between the two is that tortoises dwell on land, while turtles live in the water some or nearly all of the time
Turtles spend most of there time in water Where as tortoise spend most of their life on land some even live in desserts.
Very basically, turtles live in water and tortoises live on land.
Water difference Fresh water and sea water Lives on land and other every time in water
