See what happens when Tanya the land turtle, who stays on land most of her life, and Tami the Sea Turtle meet. See Tami’s flippers? Tanya has feet that are better for walking. Tami doesn’t walk, she swims. When she nests, she pulls herself by her flippers. Only female, sea turtles ever come ashore, out of the sea, and then only to nest. Where people play is where sea turtles must nest. Also Tanya can draw her head and feet into her shell for protection and Tami can not. Tami is also much bigger and can swim and dive better.
