Box turtles, which are terrestrial turtles, meaning they spend a lot of time on land instead of in the water, can move pretty quickly. They are small and able to disappear into the vegetation.
Tortoises, which are very terrestrial, can also move a lot quicker than one would realize. Their feet are clubby in shape and designed to live on land.
Turtles aren’t actually slow. The average speed a turtle walks is from three to four miles per hour. This is comparable to the speed people walk. A pacific leatherback turtle was also clocked at 22 miles per hour when it was being chased, according to kgb.com
