All turtles fall into one of two subgroups: Pleurodira or Cryptodira.

Pleurodira turtles are known as “side-necked” turtles and protect their head by turn it to the side and pressing it against their shell.

Cryptodira turtles are able to retract their head into their shell to protect it and are known as “hidden-necked” turtles.
