3. Turtles and Tortoises...

Tortoises are land turtles while turtles--with the exception of box turtles--live in water. While some turtles and tortoises grow quite large and require extensive care, small box turtles and water turtles can make excellent pets for children. These animals do require large enclosures, but once their enclosures are set up, they require very little maintenance. Both turtles and tortoises tend to be friendlier than other reptiles and are unlikely to bite your child. Unlike dogs and cats, they don't require items like greenies dental chews, toys, collars, and leashes.
