[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Turtles (or tortoises) meet to discuss current affairs!

Although the word "turtle" is widely used to describe all members of the order Testudines, it is also common to see certain members described as terrapins or tortoises…

To avoid confusion, the word "chelonian" is popular among veterinarians and scientists. It is based on the Ancient Greek word χελώνη (chelone, modern Greek χελώνα), meaning tortoise.
