What is the Difference Between Turtles and Tortoises?

author Thinking Captain   2 years ago

Most people know what turtles and tortoises are can’t clearly tell the difference between the two creatures! People commonly refer to tortoises as land turtles. But what exactly is the difference between these two animals?

Additional Notes (Thanks to user THBfriend)

There are actually some tortoises that live in rainforests. Also, some tortoises actually can swim but that doesn't mean you should ever force them to!

There are also some tortoises who eat some forms of "meat" like insects, worms, other small animals, and even carrion.

This video explains how to tell an alligator from a crocodile and it's probably not what you think! Watch to the very end before commenting. And no, they aren't variations within the same species, as many comment posters seem to think. They belong to two different families.

To understand how a volcano erupts, we’ll first need to take a look at the structure of the Earth. Earth has different layers which include the inner and outer core, the mantle and the crust. We’ll focus on the mantle and crust as this is where all the volcanic action takes place. The crust is the outermost layer, as well as the thinnest layer on Earth. Right below the crust is the mantle, where temperatures can reach up to 1000 degrees Celsius. Due to the high temperatures and the increased pressure in the mantle, rocks can melt to form molten rock or magma. That took some thinking!
