            The most important thing to remember about tortoises is that they are exclusively land creatures. They live in a variety of habitats, from deserts to wet tropical forests. Unlike most sea turtles, which take to land only when they are laying eggs, tortoises don’t have much to do with water other than drinking it and occasionally bathing in it. However, not all land turtles are tortoises; box turtles and wood turtles have been called tortoises, though they are not considered tortoises today.
