My childhood turtle actually ate challah.

It's a loaf of white leavened bread, typically plaited in form, traditionally baked to celebrate the Jewish sabbath.

אני אוהב צבים

What is wrong with הלחם אוכל את הצב ?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/YardenNB

In case you asked seriously, the English for that would be "The bread eats the turtle".

When is צב used, versus צבה?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/YardenNB

If we're talking about a female turtle, and informally (eg common people talking about their pet turtle), it can be צבה. If it's biologists talking, I think they'll usually say "נקבת צב היבשה המצוי" or something.

WHY YOU SOMETIMES DEMAND "EATS BREAD" WHILE OTHER TIMES DEMAND "A BREAD" - THIS IS REALLY EMBARASSING

ISN'T ALSO ''THE CAT IS EATING A BREAD''
