While turtles and tortoises may appear very similar at first glance, it's actually easy to tell the difference if you know what to look for.

## Look at the feet

The easiest way to tell the difference is to look at their feet. Tortoises live on land and have feet, while turtles live primarily in the water and have fins.

## Overall shape

Turtles tend to be flat, while tortoises have more of a dome shape.
