This is a two-parter! Today we have the tortoise, and tomorrow will bring the the hare. Tortoises are turtles, but all turtles aren’t tortoises – tortoises are generally land dwellers that don’t swim. Also, tortoises have nerve-ending in their shells so if you pet one, it can feel it! So how fast is this tortoise going? On average, they travel at about .17 miles per hour, although fastest recorded tortoise hit 5 miles per hour.
