Why does the turtle require an article before the food? I got an error when I typed "La tortuga bebe agua" and the answer was "la agua" and same thing here "la leche"?
Agua can have either El or La in front of it its like one of the only word that can.
It is not required, it was marked wrong because Duolingo probably wants you to translate every word.
The turtle drinks milk. Is stating the turtle can drink milk where as the turtle drinks the milk is present tense.
It can be is drinking as well. The difference is that la leche is referring to specific milk
Why is it ´the
milk? Sometimes its ok to leave out ´the´, as in breakfast, but others not!
La or el mean 'the' litterally, if you don't see the word 'the' then don't use el or la un and una mean 'a' or 'an' (where appropriate) same applies to los and Las (plural 'the' 's)
Turtles are not mammals and do not drink milk. I thought that it was turtles and thought that makes no sense and thought maybe it was calf derived from torro (bull).
In english you can actually say "I drink milk" instead of "I think the milk"
