NOT including terrapins or turtles that live in any sweetwater/saltwater

Apparently this Russian can swim! I always thought they would just sink.
I think this is a form of abuse! They would never do this on their own, only when they have no choice. You can see he's looking for something to hold on too, a tortoise, a hose. I don't understand why anyone would do this😞

In the sunny south...
"Can we agree that tortoises just ain’t really built to swim..."

Are they optimally equipped for swimming? Probably not. Neither are you or I. But that doesn't stop us. Got a book on my shelf with a photo of a redfoot swimming across a river in Brazil. It happens in nature...
