Turtles are the seventh species of animal available in Olympus, and the sixteenth in the Space Zoo. There are 8 different types of turtle. Like all Space Zoo animals, more turtles are unlocked progressively as the player upgrades the turtle habitat. They can be unlocked when the player upgrades their ship to Olympus 5.

- Wild: Turtles sit still in pools of water and on land.
- When ridden: Turtles move slow, and speed up marginally when in water and just after they exit the water.
- When angry: Turtles slow down and buck the player a horribly short distance in the direction they were facing.
- In habitat: Turtles scurry along in the habitat, occasionally tucking their heads, arms and legs into their shell suddenly.
- Selected in habitat: Turtles arch their weight onto their rear, and tip back forward. The momentum of this causes them to tip back onto their rear again.
Turtles are only good for fast water travel. They are good in Jungle, but are terrible in Olympus, being a contender for the worst animal in the game. They are slow, get angry quickly, sometimes even before the player can tame them, and buck the player a very short distance when angry after slowing down, resulting in wild animals moving faster and past the player and leaving the player stranded as the turtle bucks them straight into the ground. They're beyond useless anywhere besides Jungle, Olympus and Outback, and it's also easy to get eaten by tyrannosaurus rexes or spiders due to their slow speed, pounded by drop bears or walruses, or get struck by lightning or volcanic rocks.
