My son is doing a paper and has to fill out a research sheet of questions. What do you call male , female and baby turtles? Is it just turtles?
Thanks

I think that they are called just turtles. Hatchlings refers to baby turtles that have just hatched. I\'m not really sure if there is a special name for them or not.
