    The fastest swimming turtle is the leatherback turtle, which is also the largest species of turtle. Leatherbacks are built for high speed swimming with flattened yet large and very powerful flippers. They can swim at speeds up to 22 miles per hour. This also makes them the fastest moving reptile in the world, surpassing the speeds of crocodiles and alligators.
