Unlike DPS, tanking is inherently spikey, and you want to have the tools to stop the big damage attacks when they are used. While a Bear probably is better for your everyday needs, anything that can put your pet under 50% health is better tanked with a Turtle or Beetle.
So you would say a Bear is better as a leveling/questing tank while a Turtle/Beetle is better for boss tanking?

That's not a bad way to think about it, though either pet is more than fine for leveling/questing.
But consider using both. Spec a bear for greater damage, and spec a turtle for greater survivability. When you're soloing especially difficult content, use the turtle. When you just want to get through your kill quests quickly, use the bear.
