Today we were featured in a new treasury by Deborah LarsonfromEleksmom and it got me thinking about turtles. It’s kind of hard to look at those gentle faces and not just feel a tiny bit happier. But did you know they have been around for 110 million years, since the time of the dinosaurs?
Green sea turtles can stay under water for as long as five hours even though the length of a feeding dive is usually five minutes or less. Their heart rate slows to conserve oxygen: nine minutes may elapse between heartbeats. WOW! Check out the Defenders.org website for more interesting facts about sea turtles
Here’s the treasury Sea Turtle Love – Enjoy!
