    Default This tortoise lived

    1. Is "tortoise" same as "turtle"? No difference?
    2. Is "goose" same as "wild goose"? The names of the two are quite different in Korean, but in the translation, the two are treated as the same.
    ji11)This tortoise lived in a pond and he always talked too much.
    Two geese flew from their home to look for food and landed on the pond.

    The tortoise is similar to the turtle but has adapted to life on land.
