Only mammals have periods. Turtles are reptiles and reproduce by laying eggs. Therefore, no periods. Turtles don't even have wombs, since their embyoes develop in the egg, outside of the mother's body, usually buried in the ground.

Turtles actually do not breathe underwater through their lungs. Instead, turtles have the capacity to hold their breath for extended periods of time.

Turtles have lungs, so they breathe air. They can hold their breath under water for long periods of time.

Turtles have to go to the surface of water to breathe so if they get caught in underwater fishing nets they will drown.

Most turtles slow down their breathing and hold their breath and they can hold their breath for longs periods of time.

Turtles do indeed breath oxygen. They are able to hold their breath for extended periods while either hiding or search for food under water.

Red painted turtles are very good at swimming. Although they may not be super-fast, they can swim for long periods of time and know their way around. In fact, most turtles are good swimmers.

When in captivity, sea turtles should be maintained in water with a salinity level falling within a range of that of normal, natural, incoming seawater. Short periods of holding sea turtles in fresh water can be tolerated and are useful when prescribed by a veterinarian, e.g., to remove parasites and fouling epibiota such as barnacles. However, prolonged periods in fresh water should not be encouraged. Sea turtles are meant for life in the sea, so they do best in an environment with a similar salinity.

That's all the turtles in the world, the rest are unknown (to me) or extinct. LOL

LungsYes they do they doThis is actually a hard question to answer.Because Turtles can actually diffuse oxygen from the water with what is commonly referred to as Bum Gills. They aren't actually gills, but have the similar function.Turtles breathe with lungs. When underwater for long periods and when hibernating different species of turtles have different mens of absorbing the needed air. This method is by means of the skin or structures in the area of its throat.

Having a slow metabolic rate helps turtles by allowing them to stay under water for longer periods of time. The slower metabolic rate also allows turtles to require less frequent feedings.

Adult sea turtles do not have many predators. However, they are prey for a number of species of sharks. The shell of the sea turtle provides protection, even though sea turtles cannot pull their heads or fins inside their shell like other species. Sea turtles can also remain underwater for long periods of time, thereby fending off attacks from land animals.

The term "Slow" is based on your perspective. From our perspective, turtles are slow because they move slower than we do and, indeed, even slower than other things their size. This is only true, however, on land. In the water they are actually very fast. For instance, a green turtle in the sea can reach nearly 20mph. So, the belief that turtles are slow is based on the perspective of a land creature, which turtles are for only brief periods of their life.
