Did You Know?

Turtles have been on the earth for more than 200 million years. They evolved before mammals, birds, crocodiles, snakes, and even lizards.

Modern turtles are very similar to their original ancestors.

Turtles live on every continent except Antarctica.

Turtles range in size from the 4-inch Bog Turtle to the 1500-pound Leathery Turtle.

The shell of a turtle is made up of 60 different bones all connected together.

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 success.
