It is pronouced with the "sj-ljud/sj-sound", like first sound i number seven = sju. The sj-ljud can be spelled in many ways but is pronouced the same. It is one of the harder sounds to spell correctly even for sweds, since there aren't really any rules for why the words are spelled diffrently, so called unwritten rules in the swedish language where it just is the way it is
"Sköldpaddan dricker vatten" is correct. The definite article is put at the end.
Also there is no feminine in Swedish..? Utrum (common gender, en) or Neuter (ett). Sköldpadda is Common gender (en)
A/an = en [noun] or ett [noun]
Eg: a turtle = en sköldpadda
The = [noun]-en or [noun]-et
Eg: the turtle sköldpaddan
