Is a turtle and a tortoise the same thing orrr no?
I can’t fucking sleep without answers here

i don’t even know

well if you’re not asleep, I’m here to tell you that they’re not the same! Easy answer? Turtles are aquatic in some way, tortoises live on land only. not the same at all.. except that they both have shells and they’re both damn adorable. 

need cute pics? lemme know. I can make that happen. I hope you can sleep well now. phew.

Thanks for the heads up @turtlefeed . This is disgusting. 

Snapperfest is a brutal “celebration” held annually at the Campshore Campground in Ohio County, Indiana and it needs to be stopped. Innocent snapping turtles are captured, swung by their tails and bashed against the ground as amusement. BuzzFeed, will you help me save some turtles?

Snapperfest takes place on August 20th, but it’s not too late to get in touch with these people and ask them to put a stop to this horrible event.
