there are tortoises and turtles tortoises live on land and turtles swim and sometimes live underwater
I've heard Russian tortoises stay pretty small, but I don't think they are the smallest. It really depends on the genes. Leopard tortoises are the 5th largest tortoises in the world but one of mine is still baby sized after a few years. We think that's because she was bred more for show than for being large and healthy.
Until they are able to hunt adequately for themselves. They may remain with their mothers for several years, and then go on to hunt for themselves. Even then, crocodiles tend to stay in 'groups' when the time calls for it.
they stay above water they stay above water
It depends on the type of frog how long they can stay underwater. Some can stay underwater for their whole lives while some only stay for about 10 minutes.
You can wash it in a shallow tub that is large enough for the tortoise to walk around in. Put luke warm water in it and let the tortoise stay in there for 10-15 minutes.
Yes, but it's not good for the tortoise to stay upside down for long. The tortoise should be able to righten him self, help him if he's stuck. It would be very stressfull for the tortoise to stay upside down for more than a couple minutes. But it won't kill the tortoise. It is very bad for the tortoise's health.
The desert tortoise spends nearly 95% of its life underground to avoid the heat.
A turtle can only stay out of water for a short amount of time, a tortoise can stay out of water for a long time depending on how sensitive their skin is.
if it is a wild one it canit finds a place for itself to sleep although if it is a house pet then it will have to stay indoors.
Tortoises abandon their nests either right after laying, or a short while after laying. They never live with their young.

Turtles need food, water, shelter, heat and proper lighting. You can take them out of the warmth for a while to play or something but for the most part they need to be in heat. To do this you should keep a special heat lamp made just for reptiles on top of it's cage. Turtles need UVA and UVB light in order to properly digest their food and stay healthy.
Once the female tortoise lays and buries her eggs, she has nothing more to do with them. When the eggs hatch a few months later, the babies are on their own and never know their mother.
It digs a hole not to deep only big enough to fit in there; and if it is rains it will just stay there, not move and it will put his head inside the shell. and if it is hot it will stay there in the whole because the dirt is kind of cool and the turtle will chill.
A desert tortoise mother leaves her young as soon as they are laid She leaves them in a hole to keep them warm so it is best if you take the eggs out and keep them in a warm glass container( often used by scientists). If you can't find one then I suggest having her lay her eggs in a area inside your home like a room where you can control the temp and have the eggs in a box filled with dirt. Keep the eggs in a line never on top of each other. Make sure also that you do a lot of research if you ever want your tortoise to have young. A mother never stays with her young, so you must know that you shouldn't try to introduce the young to her because it might end badly. I hope I helped you a bit.
