The leatherback sea turtle (Dermochelys coriacea), sometimes called the lute turtle or leathery turtle or simply the luth, is the largest of all living turtles and is the fourth-heaviest modern reptile behind three crocodilians.

The hawksbill sea turtle (Eretmochelys imbricata) is a critically endangered sea turtle belonging to the family Cheloniidae. It is the only extant species in the genus Eretmochelys. The species has a worldwide distribution, with Atlantic and Indo-Pacific subspecies.

3. Hydromeda tectifera = Argentine snake-necked turtle (Hydromedusa tectifera)
The Argentine snake-necked turtle or South American snake-necked turtle (Hydromedusa tectifera) is a species of turtle, known for the long neck which gave it its name. Despite appearances, the Argentine snake-necked turtle is probably more closely related to the Mata mata (Chelus fimbriatus) than to the Australian snake-necked turtles in the genus Chelodina. It is found in northern Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay, and southern Brazil.

4. Chelys fimbriata = matamata turtle (Chelus fimbriata)
The mata mata, mata-mata, or matamata (Chelus fimbriata) is a freshwater turtle found in South America, primarily in the Amazon and Orinoco basins. It is the only extant species in the genus Chelus.

5. Testudo geometrica = geometric tortoise (Psammobates geometricus)
The geometric tortoise (Psammobates geometricus) is a critically endangered species of tortoise and one of three members of the genus, Psammobates. It is found in a very small section in the South-Western Cape of South Africa.

6. Testudo elephantina = Aldabra giant tortoise (Aldabrachelys gigantea)
The Aldabra giant tortoise (Aldabrachelys gigantea), from the islands of the Aldabra Atoll in the Seychelles, is one of the largest tortoises in the world.

7. Chelydra serpentina = common snapping turtle (Chelydra serpentina)
The common snapping turtle (Chelydra serpentina) is a large freshwater turtle of the family Chelydridae. Its natural range extends from southeastern Canada, southwest to the edge of the Rocky Mountains, as far east as Nova Scotia and Florida.
