Yes. Actually there was a typo in the word "tortoise" in Incubator, so I fixed it now.

In everyday language, we do not differentiate between a turtle and a tortoise. If you need to be a bit more specific, then turtle is usually "żółw morski" (sea turtle) or sometimes "żółw wodny" (water turtle), while tortoise is "żółw lądowy" (land turtle).

I am going to try and use this next week when I visit Kęty. I suspect I will have to provide both animals if I am to provide a context in which I can be understood.
