How fast is a tortoise?

While you may have come here to learn how fast is a snail, which is about 0.03 mph, tortoises are also known for their slow, sluggish movement. 

However, a giant tortoise moves way faster than a snail, about 1/6 or a mile per hour. This still isn’t fast whatsoever, but a tortoise can beat a snail any day. 

Turtles are even faster. They can move up to a mile per hour, and some species can go even faster. 

I wouldn’t recommend watching the race though.
