Turtles have diverse diets, with some being carnivorous, others being omnivorous, and some being herbivores.
Many turtle species return to specific nesting sites to lay their eggs in sandy nests, especially sea turtles, which undertake incredible nesting journeys.
Turtles, especially freshwater ones, bask in the sun to regulate their body temperature, essential for their metabolism and well-being.
In cold climates, some turtles hibernate by slowing down their metabolism and finding sheltered spots to survive the winter.
While turtles are typically solitary, they may engage in social interactions during the breeding season, and some species exhibit social tolerance, such as basking together on logs.
