Do you know the difference?
They both move slowly.

  1. Turtles = water; tortoises = land. But does anyone know the difference between a dolphin and a porpoise?

  2. But here it come,
    That heavy love
    I’m never gonna move it alone

  3. Mary (the first) says:

    Is it huge, or small?
    On land or in the water?
    This is what decides.

  4. Seems to me that a good way to tell the difference between the two is by the feet. Turtles have slightly flat, webbed feet, while tortoises have thick stout feet that remind me of elephants.
