Turtles are reptiles of the order Chelonia /kɪˈloʊniə/ or Testudines /tɛˈstjuːdɪniːz/. They are characterized by a bony or cartilaginous shell, developed from their ribs, that acts as a shield. Testudines include both extant (living) and extinct species. Its earliest known members date from the Middle Jurassic. They are one of the oldest reptile groups, more ancient than snakes or crocodilians.

Turtles are the only vertebrates with a complete shell. It is formed mainly of bone; the upper part is the domed carapace, while the underside is the flatter plastron. Its outer surface is covered in scales made of keratin, the material of hair and fingernails. The carapace bones develop from ribs, which grow sideways and develop broad flanges that join up to cover the body. Many turtles migrate short distances seasonally; the sea turtles are the only reptiles that migrate long distances to lay their eggs on a favored beach, sometimes traveling thousands of kilometers to feed before returning to the beach where they were born. It is not known how they navigate, though they do have a magnetic sense.
