Some information about Turtles
Turtles (Testudines) are an order of reptiles of which all species are characterized by an often sturdy and spherical shell. Turtles can vary greatly in size, colors and lifestyle, but are easily distinguished from all other reptiles by their outer shell.
All turtles have a bony shell on both the ventral side (plastron) and the dorsal side (carapace), unlike all other modern reptiles such as crocodilians, lizards and snakes. The shield is usually provided with a second armour, the horn shield. The carapace is connected to the abdominal armor by a bone bridge on either side of the body.
Turtles usually reproduce annually and are without exception oviparous. They grow quickly when young but develop very slowly. Larger tortoises only mature after several decades, but such species can also become very old.
There are about 355 different species of turtles, divided into fourteen families. Turtles are found all over the world, with the exception of the poles, in a variety of habitats, such as forests, grasslands, swamps and seas. Dozens of species are seriously threatened by human activities. The main threats are habitat destruction and the collection of wild turtles for consumption or the pet trade.
Distribution and habitat
Turtles are found on almost all continents, but only in tropical and subtropical regions. Especially in Africa, many species live, in Europe turtles live only in the south around the Mediterranean, in Asia only in the southern part. Only some of the land-dwelling species occur in temperate areas. In North America the turtles are found in the south and central, in South America turtles are only missing in the extreme western coastal strip.
In the Netherlands
The European terrapin (Emys orbicularis) once lived in the Netherlands. Every now and then a stray specimen is found, but in general it has disappeared from the Netherlands for a long time. Nowadays there are no turtles in the Netherlands except for a few released or escaped ex-pets. These specimens can survive but do not reproduce in too temperate regions. This is because the temperatures are too low for the eggs to hatch. It has also been found that these exotics do not pose a great threat to the native flora and fauna. Many of these animals will die prematurely due to circumstances that differ from those in their natural habitat, such as the relatively harsh winters in the Netherlands. Species that have been found in the Netherlands are the red-eared (decorative) turtle, the false map turtle, the yellow-eared slider and the snapping turtle.
