Do turtles live in their shells?

Yes and no. Yes, because their shells are attached to their bodies(the shell is partly made up by the turtle's backbone), and if it were removed, the turtle would die.

For example, the snapping turtle and the painted turtle both like aquatic environments. The box turtle likes a more dry environment, and the list goes on.

Can a water turtle share its tank with a Snapping Turtle?

umm i guess if you wanted them to But like certain fish (as well as preying mantises as I found out), you may not want to take the chance of having a blood bath. Snapping turtles are known to be violent, therefore, I would surmise that they are territorial, so don't risk it! Also, even if the snapping turtle is ok with it, there might be other factors involved, such as the type of water that is needed for each to exist naturally, as well the space and the food that is required for both of them. In other words, research both turtles' lifestyle, diet, cohabitation tendencies, as well as the type of water needed for each, and whether you need a filter, a new one, or even a new tank.
