A turtle is a reptile with an armoured shell. Some species are aquatic or marine.


A Ravenclaw student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry believed that she spotted a boy named Derek talking to one of these creatures and believed that she should keep an eye on him.[1]

Hermione Granger once worried that the tortoise she created using the Teapot to tortoise spell looked more like a turtle.[2]

Sea turtles can be found within the Black Lake.[3]

Behind the scenes

  • In the Spanish translations of the books, Trevor is stated to be a turtle instead of a toad.
