The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are mutated turtles - but what species?
Are there any references in the comics for the exact species?

(Thank you for your answers! And sorry for my bad english!)

The turtles are often referred to as terrapins. While this is not an exact species, it is more definitive than simply saying 'turtle.'

Favorite Turtle : I love Mikey the most for his childish humor (and kick butt fighting style with those chucks!) that makes me laugh evey time I see an eppie with him in it, no matter how many times I see that episode. YET...I have come to respect them all. Donnie for his strong intellect and ability to make a smart joke (which, most of the time, I get them!), Raph for his Tough Turtle attitude and soft side (OMGsh, so CUTE!!), and Leo for his leader personality and caring for his family (if only he didn't take the blame so much...). And who could forget Master Splinter, the rat that loves and trains and is funny in his "old man" way!

I've heard sometimes from dA that they're red-eared sliders, but who really knows?
