Turtles are prehistoric reptiles which have roamed, swam, on this earth for a very long time. The earliest known to date lived 215 million years ago. These charming creatures breathe air and can use oxygen dissolved in water. The smaller kinds of turtles live in fresh water while the largest make their lives at sea. Turtles like to cover their eggs in dirt or sand leaving them to hatch on their own. Once the little lives are born, they make their way to the water. The turtle carries a shell where it could hide from predators and keep its soft body inside save. It’s like a home on its back. Turtles can live for a long time, some of them centuries, and this is quite AMAZING.
