...The biology of the sea turtle and facors affecting its population Upon first sight of the great sea turtle it might just think that it is like any other turtle. The truth is that marine turtles are beautiful creatures spending a majority of their lives wandering endlessly through our massive ocean. These reptiles have the ability to do amazing things. Some of these things include evolving to a range of purely innate responses to the demands of a changing suite of environments and having remarkable navigations skills for their excursions that may last up to several years. Sea turtles have been in existence for more than 100 million years and researchers have been studying them for great deal of time. During the past 20 years however, the natural history of marine turtles has received growing attention and much has been learned (Bjorndal 19). Instantly you will fall in love with their beauty and majestic way of life. The biology behind these amazing animals causes them stand out from much of the ocean life. There are seven different species of sea turtles. These species include Kemps Ridley, Flatback, Loggerhead, Olive Ridley, Leatherback, Hawksbill, and the Hawaiian Green Turtle (Gardner 2004). Unlike many animals the female sea turtle is generally larger than the males. The main distinction between the two is that the male tends to have a longer tail.

...Advice. Plz reply by the earliest. Me & my turtle would be very thankfull to you. Awaiting your reply. Thank you ANSWER: Swollen eyes in a RES is usually a sign of an infection. It is always best to seek a vet's help with infections, but the basic home care would be to... 1. Offer clean, warm water (in the range you are is OK, but maybe a little warmer) with as little stress as possible. 2. Try to relieve the eyes with eye drops, either commercial turtle eye drops, human eye drops, or a vitamin A oil dripped in the eyes. Apply to lubricate and cleanse daily. Keep the turtle out of the tank for about an hour. 3. Try to fight the infection with ONE good antibiotic treatment, either a turtle sulfa dip, or a fish medicine like 'stress coat'. Most fish antibiotics require you turn off the filter, but stress coat does not. Honestly, the odds are a lot better with a vet's care (unless the vet claims it is a vitamin A issue- which is rare in meat-eating water turtles. If he claims this, make sure he does the proper blood test before treating). You can get more info at http://www.redearslider.com http://www.austinsturtlepage.com http://www.turtleforum.com ---------- FOLLOW-UP ---------- QUESTION: Thanks a million for your reply. It helped me cure my turtle of which was an eye infection due to dirty water. I followed your step 1&2 all the while. Couldnt get to step 3 cause we dont get any antibiotics like turtle sulfa dip or stress coat here in India,......

...the increasing in temperature. One species that may be potentially affected greatly are sea turtles, species such as the loggerhead, leatherback, green turtles and a few others. Recent studies have shown that the increasing temperatures maybe threatening the stability of this ancient creature. Sea Turtles have been on Earth for roughly 240 million years, with fossils dating back to late Jurassic period (Neaq). Over a span of millions of years turtles have experienced serious environmental fluctuations, from the breaking up of PANGEA to major sea level rising of one hundred meters to the blistering cold Ice Ages (Neaq). The key to their survival lies in thier ability to continuously find a stabilized habitat to leave their eggs during incubation (Education-portal). Turtles commonly have a slow growth rate, this trait is an advantage for a turtle because over the years it becomes wiser learning how to adapt and cope with changes. During nesting season female turtles travel miles in search for a stabilized beach where weather conditions are ideal and safe from predators and human activities, ensuring the maximum potential for its hatchlings to make it to the ocean. Despite these efforts a hatchlings chances of surviving to maturity is one in every thousand sea turtles. For this reason turtles spawn hundreds of eggs at once in an effort to increase the chances of survival, however; turtles main traits such as their long lifespan, strong competitive ability to find a stable......

The Green Turtle

...The green turtle is one of the largest sea turtles and the only herbivore among the different species. Green turtles are in fact named for the greenish color of their cartilage and fat, not their shells. In the Eastern Pacific, a group of green turtles that have darker shells are called black turtles by the local community. Green turtles are found mainly in tropical and subtropical waters. Like other sea turtles, they migrate long distances between feeding grounds and the beaches from where they hatched. Classified as endangered, green turtles are threatened by overharvesting of their eggs, hunting of adults, being caught in fishing gear and loss of nesting beach sites. Body Temperature- All reptiles are ectotherms. They are cold blooded and their bodies cannot create heat, so they must get it from another source, the sun. Body Covering- have a body covering of scaly skin. All reptiles have scaly skin. This tough, scaly skin is called scute or osteoderms Habitat-They both live in Land and Water How they Reproduce-The reproduction process of sea turtles is important as it is what keeps the various species alive. The age for maturity significantly varies from one species to the next. For some, it is when they are 3-5 years of age. For others though it is as late as 20-50 years of age. It will depend on the type of sea turtle species you are talking about. The mating process takes place in the water so there isn’t too much known about it. This has been confirmed......

...protection plan that I would create for the Box turtle would be an awareness plan to make sure that the inhabitants of the area were the box turtles live are aware of how box turtles live and also know how they can do their part. The awareness plan will educate people that “Box turtles rarely bite, but be gentle with them and avoid touching their head” (biodavidson, 2014). Usually when people are made aware of a problem and are provided a solution they usually comply, especially when they value something. The box turtle; in a lot of areas is taken in by families as a pet. Most people probably think that when they take them as pets they are doing them a favor but when they take them out of their habitat they are actually stressing them out to the point were they cannot reproduce most of the time.

Dragon

...Dragon Name Dragon The word dragon entered the English language in the early 13th century from Old French dragon, which in turn comes from Latin draconem (nominative draco) meaning "huge serpent, dragon", from the Greek word δράκων, drakon (genitive drakontos, δράκοντος) "serpent, giant seafish". The Greek and Latin term referred to any great serpent, not necessarily mythological, and this usage was also current in English up to the 18th century. Morphology A dragon is a mythological representation of a reptile. In antiquity, dragons were mostly envisaged as serpents, but since the Middle Ages, it has become common to depict them with legs, resembling a lizard. Dragons are usually shown in modern times with a body like a huge lizard, or a snake with two pairs of lizard-type legs, and able to emit fire from their mouths. The European dragon has bat-like wings growing from its back. A dragon-like creature with wings but only a single pair of legs is known as a wyvern. Comparative mythology Further information: Chaoskampf, Sea serpent, Proto-Indo-European religion § Dragon or Serpent and Serpent (Bible) The association of the serpent with a monstrous opponent overcome by a heroic deity has its roots in the mythology of the Ancient Near East, including Canaanite (Hebrew, Ugaritic), Hittite and Mesopotamian. Humbaba, the fire-breathing dragon-fanged beast first described in the Epic of Gilgamesh is sometimes described as a dragon with Gilgamesh playing the part of...

...Dragon Day is an annual event that occurs every year on the Friday before spring break at Cornell University. The center of the event is the procession of a dragon, created by first-year architecture students at the Cornell University College of Architecture, Art, and Planning. The construction is funded by selling Dragon Day t-shirts. The first event was in 1901. Believing that there should be a "College of Architecture Day," student Willard Straight of the class of 1901 led a group of architecture students around campus carrying a model dragon. This was partly inspired by the legend of St. Patrick's driving all the snakes and serpents from Ireland. Lincoln Hall, which housed the College of Architecture at the time, was decorated with orange and green banners, shamrocks, and themed decorations. In the 1950s, the event evolved into its current form, with an actual constructed dragon. It is unknown when the term "Dragon Day" was coined, but it likely came into use in the 1950s. Since then, the holiday has turned into a parade for the dragon. Although it is typically carried from beneath by architecture students, in 1964 and 1976 the dragon was mounted on a car and driven through the route.[citation needed] In 1985, the dragon fell over as it rounded Sibley Hall, and was not able to complete its route. In 2009, due to new New York State Department of Environmental Conservation regulations[1] , the dragon was not burned at the end of the parade route; the dragon's "nest" was......

...30 January 2012 Asian Dragons Vs European Dragons Whether you live in Vietnam, China, Japan, Scotland, USA or anywhere in the world, you have probably heard of the dragons-the animal of imagination of human. A dragon is a legendary creature, typically with serpentine or reptilian traits, that feature in the myths of many cultures. There are two distinct cultural traditions of dragons: the European dragon, derived from European folk traditions and ultimately related to Greek and Middle Eastern mythologies, and the Asian dragon, with counterparts in Japan, Korea and other East Asian countries. Since I was a kid, dragons have always been a mystery and an attraction for me .I have spent a lot of time to study about them and found out that there are three general differences between the dragon from the east and the west which are appearance, symbolism and what they mean to society . First of all, the easily identifiable difference between an Asian dragon and a European one is the appearance. Asian dragons resemble large snakes. They look like a combination of many animals such as snakes and eagles, and had no wings. For Chinese, each one of its four short legs had five toes while a Japanese dragon has three and a Korean one has four. Even though depicted without wings the Asian dragon is believed to fly. They are often in red and gold. Unlike the Asian, the European typically depicted their dragons as a huge fire-breathing scaly and horned dinosaur-like creature with bat-type......
