Turtles are quite mysterious, and maybe it is because they have been around for so long and possess so much wisdom about the world, about Mother Earth and even about us humans. And whatever way you may feel about The Turtles, you will have to admit that they are some of the most peaceful animals on Planet Earth. And they teach you that in life you must always take it easy, also that "The Slow Way Is Always The Best Way". And even though us Humans are a very young specie and very ferocious with an appetite for murder, death and destruction, we can still find the time to appreciate one specie of animal, The Turtle, that lives its life in peace and have no agenda, and yet can still make it in this life. But what do you know about The Turtle Animal? Here, Let Me Help You With Some Facts:
- Turtles range in size from the 4-inch Bog Turtle to the 1500-pound Leathery Turtle.
- North America contains a large variety of turtle species, but Europe contains only two species of turtle and three species of tortoise.
- The top domed part of a turtle's shell is called the carapace, and the bottom underlying part is called the plastron.
- Most turtle species have five toes on each limb with a few exceptions including the American Box Turtle of the Carolina species that only has four toes and, in some cases, only three.
- Turtles have good eyesight and an excellent sense of smell. Hearing and sense of touch are both good and even the shell contains nerve endings.
- Some aquatic turtles can absorb oxygen through the skin on their neck and cloacal areas allowing them to remain submerged underwater for extended periods of time and enabling them to hibernate underwater.
- Turtles are one of the oldest and most primitive groups of reptiles and have outlived many other species. One can only wonder if their unique shell is responsible for their longevity
- One documented case of longevity involves an adult Indian Ocean Giant Tortoise that, when captured as an adult, was estimated to be fifty years old. It then lived another 152 years in captivity
