"The turtles" is perfectly fine if the sentence is in reference to a larger collection. So a motley group of things might contain ice, marbles, and turtles. In this case saying "The turtles are animals" has semantic meaning. You can still say "Turtles are animals", but it leaves out the implied reference to the overall group.
