World Turtle Day!
Did you know that turtles have been
around for more than 200 million years? These ancient creatures evolved
before mammals, birds, snakes, or lizards! Biologists believe that
turtles have managed to outlive many other species due to the unique
protection provided by their shells.
Turtles come in all different shapes and sizes, and can be found on every continent except Antartica. The smallest is the Bog Turtle, which usually measures just four inches in length, and the largest is the Leathery Turtle, which can weigh up to 1500 pounds!
