"He sees the turtle."
Translation:Hij ziet de schildpad.
@kumbam @grey236 Here is a list of the most common animals, by category, in English with their Dutch counterparts: http://educatie-en-school.infonu.nl/taal/9424-vertaling-dierennamen-engels-nederlands.html. They are not listed with their articles, het or de, but the majority of those listed take 'de' as their article. The exceptions are: het konijn (the rabbit), het paard (the horse), het rund (the ox), het varken (the pig), het hert (the deer), het nijlpaard (the hippopotamus), and het lieveheersbeestje (literally, dear lord beastie, or ladybug). Luipaard (leopard) takes 'de' as its article even though it contains 'paard.' Also, it is 'het dier' (the animal). I hope this is helpful to you.
