Information about turtles:

Turtles are aquatic or semi-aquatic reptiles of the order Testudines. Because they are reptiles, they exothermic so they cannot regulate their body temperature and must use their environments to do so. Turtles are part of the Superorder Chelonia, which includes terrapins, sea turtles and tortoises. The oldest known turtles date from about 215 million years ago, in the late Triassic Period of the Mesozoic era, which makes them older than the other reptiles like snakes, lizards and even crocodiles. All turtles breath air and lay their eggs on land.

The largest extant (living) chelonian is the Leatherback Sea Turtle, which the shell alone can grow to a size of over six feet and the animal can weigh in excess of a ton (900 kg) There were turtles who went extinct like the Archelon ischyros, which could grow to a length of over 15 feet (4.6 meters) Turtles have become very successful animals through millions of years of evolution, and inhabit every continent except Antarctica. Turtles are very popular as pets, and thousands of people keep them in aquariums and ponds.

Some turtles, like the red-eared slider, have been introduced into areas they are not native to, and have become an invasive species forcing the native turtles out.

Archelon is a genus of extinct prehistoric sea turtle. These massive marine reptiles lived in the oceans of North America during the late Cretaceous (75-65 million years ago.) They grew to an amazing 12 feet long and weighed over 2 tons. The largest Archelon fossil, found in the Pierre Shale of South Dakota in the 1970s, measures more than 13 feet (5 meters) long, and about 4.9 meters (16 ft) wide from flipper to flipper. Unlike most modern turtles, Archelon did not have a solid shell, but instead had a skeletal framework supporting a leathery or bony carapace. Archelon's closest living relative is the sea turtle known as the Leatherback. • Paper thickness: 10.3 mil • Paper weight: 5.6 oz/y² (192 g/m²) • Opacity: 94% Buy a Digital Download

Arrau Turtle – Signed Fine Art Print

$19.95$27.95

Information about the Arrau River Turtle:

The Arrau River Turtle is one of the largest freshwater turtles on earth. It goes by several names, such as South American river turtle, Giant South American turtle, the Charapa turtle, Tartaruga-da-amazônia, or simply Araú This semi-aquatic reptile is the largest of the side-neck turtles (Pleurodira). The turtle is found in the Amazon River and its tributaries in Peru, Brazil, Colombia and Venezuela. Adults often reach three feet long (one meter in length.) The turtle is a herbivore, feeding on aquatic plants. Like their relatives the sea turtles, Arrau turtles gather in huge numbers in order to travel to suitable nesting areas. Because of these large nesting areas, and the fact that few of the young survive to adulthood makes the turtle very vulnerable to environmental changes such as pollution and deforestation.
