50 Times People Captured Turtles Being Ridiculous And Adorable
If you’re thinking about owning a pet but don’t feel like getting a dog or a cat, some people might say that one of the best options is getting a turtle. A lot can depend on an individual, but some people find these creatures to be perfect pets as they live longer and they don’t require as much energy as, for example, dogs. It might seem that turtles are a rare choice when it comes to picking a pet, but here are some moments when people online decided to share their adorable pet turtles or pictures that capture how amazing they truly are. Which one of these is your favorite? Don’t forget to leave your thoughts in the comments down below!

Very often we might hear two names that refer to turtles. These are turtle and tortoise. What is the difference between these two creatures? The main difference is that turtles mainly live in water and only appear on land occasionally, while tortoises live only on land. They also differ in their appearance: while turtles are flat and light, tortoises are found to be thicker and heavier. It is known that turtles live from 20 to 40 years while tortoises live longer: from 60 to 80 years.

It might seem that turtles are easier to take care of than other pets that need to be watched all the time, taken outside at least twice a day, and in need of special foods or vitamins. These creatures also require special care. One of the main reasons why it is important to think before getting a turtle as a pet is that it carries salmonella bacteria that can be transmitted to people.
Volunteers Form A Human Wall To Guide Baby Turtles To The Sea
On the first day of July at 4pm, just 52 days after laying, 112 loggerhead sea turtle hatchlings began to climb to the top of their nest in the sand. STCB had Beachkeepers watching closely, as this nest is at risk from the airport lights which can disorientate hatchlings.
When several mini heads appeared above the sand STCB shaded the nest to prevent the hatchlings dehydrating in the hot sand. We then waited until the sun was going down and hatching took place. Here are the images from hatching. Thank you to all the volunteers who formed a human wall to allow the small loggerheads to make their way to the sea in safety.
For turtles to grow and be happy with the place they are in, they need the right lighting and temperature, as well as filtered water. Having in mind how long turtles live, people should really think before getting one. And even if the responsibility does not scare you, it is recommended to get a turtle from an animal shelter.

Sometimes people come to the realization that they won’t be able to take care of their pet and the best way to act in this case is to contact an animal shelter or animal rescue group. It is forbidden to let them loose thinking that they will be able to take care of themselves back in the wild. This is not allowed as turtles carry diseases and can affect other turtles. Also, very often, letting a turtle out into the wild means that they are not going to make it on their own.

It is always a calming and satisfying feeling releasing the hatchlings back to where they eggs were laid.
