Both 'schildpadden' and 'zeeschildpadden' are accepted.

A 'schildpad' is a more generic term for both turtles and turtoises. A 'zeeschildpad' is a turtle that lives in the sea. Others indclude: 'landschildpad' (as the name suggests, a "turtle" that lives on the land: turtoise) and 'moerasschildpad' (a "turtle" that lives in swamps: terrapin).
