No, the turtle is not a mammal. A characteristic biological feature of the class of mammals is the presence of mammary glands and the ability to feed their young with milk. Turtles, on the other hand, do not have mammary glands, do not feed their offspring with milk, but reproduce by laying eggs. For this reason, we can safely say that the turtle is not a mammal.
