"Las tortugas comen arroz."
Translation:The turtles eat rice.
do all animals that end in "a" or "o" change when speaking of all girls or all boys? For example: Like Las gatas and Los gatos
It isn't quite that simple. Here's some info on it: http://spanish.about.com/od/nouns/a/gender-animals.htm
think of the way americans (or really anywhere I think) would say 'butter'. the 'tt' actually sounds like a 'd' and is the same action with your tongue as when you roll an r. :)
People say butter like "budder"? 0_o....You confuse me yet again, America
Just 'Turtles eat rice' should be accepted, as many times in Spanish you can generalize that way, but you keep the article (unlike in English where you drop the article).
According to a another translation "tortuga" is a tortoise, "turtle" in Spanish is a turtle.
