Tortoise is a cold-blooded animal. Tortoises or land turtles are a family of land-dwelling reptiles of the order of turtles. Like their marine cousins, the sea turtles, tortoises are shielded from predators by a shell. The top part of the shell is the carapace, the underside is the plastron and the two are connected by the bridge. The tortoise has both an endoskeleton and an exoskeleton.
