It has been estimated that sea turtles diverged from their reptilian ancestors about 250 million years ago during the Jurassic Period. It is believed that they were once land turtles, but evolved to live in the sea from there.
The seven species of turtles that exist today have been around for about 120 million years. Pretty impressive little guys!
It depends on your belief system, really. Evolutionists believe that they’ve been here about 100-200 million years. Creationists believe that they’ve been around as long as everyone else, around 10-11 thousand years.
