These particular reptiles are present all over the continent, except the Antarctic lands. In these places, climatic conditions do not allow their survival. However, tropical and subtropical regions are the habitats where biodiversity is most significant.
These animals are also characterized by remarkable longevity. The average age, however, varies considerably from species to species. The record for longevity is set by giant turtles, which can easily exceed 100 years of life.

As pets, they are only apparently easy to manage. They may require special care and precise knowledge of their ethological needs and lifestyle habits.
A dorsal shell typically covers the body of these particular reptiles, a sort of protective shell called the carapace. The belly, instead, is flattened and covered by bone plates. Within the ventral plate can be retracted head, tail, and limbs.
Turtles can be both aquatic, marine or freshwater, and terrestrial. While the water specimens are predators, the terrestrial ones are herbivores. Usually, we speak of tortoises to indicate specimens adapted to earthly life.
The size of these animals can vary greatly. The smallest species have a size of 3-4 cm, while other specimens can be over 2 meters. All turtles lay their eggs, and this never happens in an aquatic environment.
However, they also can absorb oxygen directly from the water so that they can remain submerged for a long time. The aquatic specimens, which live in freshwater or the sea, are mainly omnivorous.
