A Turtle (亀, kame) is a reptile characterised by a shell developed from their ribs that acts as a shield. These reptiles have the ability to stay underwater for long periods at a time. Turtles are known to live a long life and, depending on the species, they can live from 10 to 100 years at most.
In Strange and Bright Nature Deity Chapter 12, there was a discussion between Reimu Hakurei and Marisa Kirisame. It appears that there is a pond in the back of the Hakurei Shrine that inhabits some turtles. Using Genjii as an example, they could possibly live longer if they evolve to a type of Youkai.
