The More You Know: Turtle, tortoise, or terrapin? It depends who is talking:
- In Britain: turtles live in the sea, terrapins live in fresh or brackish water, and tortoises live on land.
- In American: turtles live in fresh water (or on land, like box turtles), sea turtles live in the ocean, tortoises live on land, and terrapins (like the diamondback terrapin) live in brackish water.
- In Australia, turtles live in the ocean and in fresh water, and tortoises live on land.
