World's Largest Sea Turtle! Giant Leatherback Sea Turtle! https://youtu.be/6u5NqrKG3dA I know this is not our usual content, but could you imagine if we could get this turtle on our side? GO TEAM USA! Minigun Turtle! Make sure to subscribe to the channel! Leatherback turtles have the most hydrodynamic body design of any sea turtle, with a large, teardrop-shaped body. A large pair of front flippers powers the turtles through the water. Like other sea turtles, the leatherback has flattened fore limbs adapted for swimming in the open ocean. Claws are absent from both pairs of flippers. The leatherback's flippers are the largest in proportion to its body among extant sea turtles. Leatherback's front flippers can grow up to 2.7 m (8.9 ft) in large specimens, the largest flippers (even in comparison to its body) of any sea turtle. The leatherback has several characteristics that distinguish it from other sea turtles. Its most notable feature is the lack of a bony carapace. Instead of scutes, it has thick, leathery skin with embedded minuscule osteoderms. Seven distinct ridges rise from the carapace, crossing from the cranial to caudal margin of the turtle's back. Leatherbacks are unique among reptiles in that their scales lack β-keratin. The entire turtle's dorsal surface is colored dark grey to black, with a scattering of white blotches and spots. Demonstrating countershading, the turtle's underside is lightly colored. Instead of teeth, the leatherback turtle has points on the tomium of its upper lip, with backwards spines in its throat to help it swallow food and to stop its prey from escaping once caught. Oesophagus of a leatherback sea turtle showing spines to retain prey D. coriacea adults average 1–1.75 m (3.3–5.7 ft) in curved carapace length (CCL), 1.83–2.2 m (6.0–7.2 ft) in total length, and 250 to 700 kg (550 to 1,540 lb) in weight. In the Caribbean, the mean size of adults was reported at 384 kg (847 lb) in weight and 1.55 m (5.1 ft) in CCL. Similarly, those nesting in French Guiana, weighed an average of 339.3 kg (748 lb) and measured 1.54 m (5.1 ft) in CCL. The largest verified specimen ever found was discovered in the Pakistani beach of Sanspit and measured 213 cm (6.99 ft) in CCL and 650 kg (1,433 lb) in weight, a previous contender, the "Harlech turtle", was purportedly 256.5 cm (8.42 ft) in CCL and 916 kg (2,019 lb) in weight however recent inspection of its remains housed at the National Museum Cardiff have found that its true CCL is around 1.5 m (4.9 ft), casting doubt on the accuracy of the claimed weight, as well. On the other hand, a scientific paper claimed that the species can weigh up to 1,000 kg (2,200 lb) without providing more verifiable detail. The leatherback turtle is scarcely larger than any other sea turtle upon hatching, as they average 61.3 mm (2.41 in) in carapace length and weigh around 46 g (1.6 oz) when freshly hatched. D. coriacea exhibits several anatomical characteristics believed to be associated with a life in cold waters, including an extensive covering of brown adipose tissue, temperature-independent swimming muscles, countercurrent heat exchangers between the large front flippers and the core body, and an extensive network of countercurrent heat exchangers surrounding the trachea.

15 Strange & Unusual Turtles
 
09:52
From long necks and pig snouts; to the world’s largest turtle; Here are 15 strange and unusual turtles Subscribe to Epic Wildlife http://goo.gl/6rzs5u Let's Connect -- http://www.epicadamwildlife.com/ -- http://www.facebook.com/epicadamwildlife -- http://www.twitter.com/epicwildlife -- http://gplus.to/epicwildlife Spiny Softshell Turtle It’s recognized as one of the largest freshwater turtles in North America … females are known to grow a shell around 18 inches long… and can live to be more than 50 years old. The creature gets its name from the series of small conelike spines projecting from the front edge of its carapace. Many people think it gives them an appearance similar to a dinosaur. African Helmeted Turtle While they appear innocent enough, the loopy smile conceals a stone cold killer. They live in fresh and stagnant waters of sub-Saharan Africa and are known to be omnivorous, feeding on anything from fish to small crustaceans. When larger prey like doves arrive to drink, groups of these turtles have been observed to capture and drown the prey. The group causes so much commotion that they’re often mistaken for crocodile attacks! It’s the only species of turtle known to exhibit such behavior. Mata Mata Alligator Snapping Turtle Their appearance invokes comparisons to dinosaurs, what with their spiky shells, thick scaled tails and beaklike jaws. Considered one of the world’s largest freshwater turtles, they can weigh around 176 pounds on average … while their carapace averages a length of more than 30 inches. The largest ever specimen of alligator snapping turtle was said to have been found in Kansas … but that account was never verified. Along with that scary look and impressive weight, they have long life spans, too … living up to 100 years. And while their rough skin does resemble that of an alligator, their name is really inspired by their springlike neck and powerful jaws. If they’re sufficiently provoked, their bite is easily capable of amputating human fingers! Eastern Long Necked Turtle Obviously named for its neck, this reptile is found in Australian lakes … and is actually recognized as a species of snake-necked turtles.. Its neck can grow about as long as its carapace (KARE-uh-pace) … which can average over 11 inches. This species does not pull its head directly back into its shell …. Because they bend their head sideways, they’re known as ‘side-necked turtles’. These carnivorous critters are also known as ‘stinkers’. (they have a lot of names, right?) When the animal feels threatened, it releases a foul smelling substance from its musk glands. Did you know the turtles can strike at prey by quickly straightening their neck? Pig Nosed Turtle As you might expect, this critter’s name is inspired by its unusual proboscis (pruh-BOS-is), which resembles a pig’s … and it serves more than an ornamental function. It can be used as a snorkel protruding above the water's surface … and allowing the turtle to stay submerged. The nose is highly sensitive to motion, and assists in locating prey in murky waters. They’re fairly large critters, weighing up to 40 pounds and are native to New Guinea and Australia. Did you know that it’s the only freshwater turtle with flippers not unlike marine turtles? The huge creature in the photograph can easily be identified as such by virtue of its enormous flipper that occupies the lower third of the image. We think the photo was taken in Florida, where five species of sea turtles are found. The turtle appears to have buried its head in the sand while the couple looks on. But according to experts, that behavior is entirely normal for the critter. Researchers studied a female leatherback at the Archie Carr National Wildlife Refuge in 2015 to observe the female leatherbacks nesting habits. She crawled from the water to excavate an area of the beach to serve as a place to deposit her eggs. Over the course of 90 minutes her flippers dug a chamber into the sand … into which she deposited her eggs ... Then camouflaged the eggs by scattering about clumps of sand. Did you know the Leatherback is the largest of all living turtles, and can weigh more than 1,500 pounds. It’s name comes from the oily, leathery skin that is stretched over a series of bony plates. It’s the only sea turtle that does not have a hard shell

10 Biggest Sea Creatures Ever Caught
 
05:42
You won't believe that fishermen actually caught these gigantic sea monsters! Subscribe to our channel: http://goo.gl/9CwQhg SyFy recently aired the third film in their so-bad-its-good “Sharknado” series, prompting some to wonder if airborne, tornado-based sharks could actually be real. Okay, so no one is really wondering that. Still, though, the ocean continues to represent a great unknown to us, providing home to countless species, many of which remain a mystery to humanity. The more we learn about what lurks deep below the surface, the more we realize still remains uncovered. With two-thirds of the Earth’s surface covered in water, it stands to reason that a great deal of that space remains unexplored. Of course, just because humankind hasn’t covered every iota of ground along the ocean floor, it doesn’t mean that those areas are uninhabited. All we know for sure is that the truly deepest depths of the world’s oceans continue to offer surprises, even as scientific technology becomes increasingly advanced. New species unlike any others known before are routinely discovered, with entirely new and alien biomes in extreme environments that no life had even been thought possible have challenged our very notions of what life is and how it has evolved. Amidst the cold darkness of a low-lying ocean area with depths that no sunlight can penetrate lies an alien world of incredibly rare and mysterious species. While many are simple, harmless omnivores, they share the ocean floor with some pretty unsettling forces. These ocean-based creatures – those that we know about, anyway – change everything we think we know about fish. Each one has at least one predominant feature that stands out as being unlike anything seen before. Think you know sharks? Well, how about one with a saw-like nose or a frilly, eel-like body. Think you’ve seen some big fish? How about a 17-metre long swimmer or a 900-pound squid or even a 5,000-pound behemoth sunfish? Lurking within the ocean are a number of deadly, threatening, vicious creatures that are naturally designed and programmed to hunt and stalk their prey. Thankfully, most of these monsters live at pressures that humans could never survive at – not that they would survive long down there, anyway. In recent years, Hollywood has sparked a fascination with zombies, aliens and other forces that exist beyond the realms of our planet and that are not steeped in reality. Despite that, some of the strangest and most terrifying creatures in the universe lie beneath the surface of bodies of water with which we are, at least partially, familiar. As we sit on a beach staring out at the natural beauty of the Pacific Ocean, we remain blissfully oblivious to all that lurks within. This list seeks to open the door to an entire world of deep sea activity, featuring a cast of creepy and spooky characters that few even know exist. These 10 fish, some of whom may seem to be borne out of your darkest nightmares, are all very real and may give you second thoughts the next time you foray into the ocean. And these are just the ones we know about… Check out these other awesome videos! 10 Shockingly Large Creatures That Actually Exist https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9odlL5Ti3dc 10 Things That Will Happen When Humans Go Extinct https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ml_awEqbEE Our Social Media: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheRichest.org Twitter: https://twitter.com/TheRichest_Com Instagram: http://instagram.com/therichest For more videos and articles visit: http://www.therichest.com/

Sea Turtle with Straw up its Nostril - "NO" TO PLASTIC STRAWS
 
08:07
This is the original video! Filmed by Christine Figgener, marine biologist at Texas A&M University. ***WARNING: Graphic Content & Inappropiate/ Strong Language!*** This video shows graphically why plastic waste is detrimental to marine life, especially single-use plastics (such as straws, which are one of the most redundant items). This turtle suffers from an item that is human-made and used by most of us frequently. The research team around Christine Figgener (Texas A&M University) found a male Olive Ridley sea turtle during an in-water research trip in Costa Rica. He had a 10-12 cm PLASTIC STRAW lodged in his nostril and they removed it. SAY "NO" TO PLASTIC STRAWS, AND ANY KIND OF ONE-TIME USE PLASTIC ITEMS! If you would like to support our research and conservation efforts in Costa Rica, please think about donating to our GoFundMe Campaign http://gofundme.com/wuhvd6zj UPDATES The Plastic Pollution Coalition just launched their "No Straw" Campaign in collaboration with us. Take the No-Straw-Pledge and learn more: http://www.plasticpollutioncoalition.... ----- The Story behind the viral video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLN52... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4MPHb... OUR STORY: My research team found a male Olive Ridley sea turtle during an in-water research trip in Costa Rica. He had a 10-12 cm PLASTIC STRAW lodged in his nostril. After initially thinking that we are looking at a parasitic worm, and trying to remove it to identify it, we cut a small piece off to investigate further and finally identified what we were REALLY looking at. After a short debate about what we should do we removed it with the plier of a swiss army knife which was the only tool available on our small boat (not intended for overnight stays), since we were on the ocean, in a developing country, a few hours away from the coast and several hours away from any vet (probably days from any vet specialised in reptiles, not to mention sea turtles) and x-ray machines. Plus, we would have incurred a penalty (up to time in jail) on ourselves by removing the turtle since that is beyond our research permits. He did very obviously not enjoy the procedure very much, but we hope that he is now able to breath more freely. The blood from the shoulder is from a 6mm skin biopsy we took previously to this event for a genetic study (part of our permitted research), which usually doesn't bleed much, but which started bleeding while restraining the turtle. We disinfected the air passageway with iodine and kept the turtle for observation before releasing him back into the wild. The bleeding stopped pretty much immediately after the removal of the straw, and when we released him, he swam happily away. The turtle very likely swallowed the straw while ingesting other food items and then either expelled the straw together with the redundant sea water through her nostrils, or regurgitated the straw and it ended up in the wrong passageway. The nasal cavity of sea turtles is connected directly to the palate (roof of the mouth) by a long nasopharyngeal duct.

12 BIGGEST Legendary Sea Monsters
 
11:02
From the Kraken who’s waiting to be released! To the demon like merman with the body of a shark, here are 12 Biggest Legendary Sea Monsters Subscribe to American Eye NOW 6. Moby Dick This is the whale featured in one of the greatest American novels of all time by Herman Melville, Moby Dick or the Whale that bit off the captain, Ahab’s leg at the knee. This giant whale, is described by Ishmael as having a peculiar snow white wrinkled forehead with high pyramidical white hump. The rest of its body was striped with patches of white and gray. It was never mentioned exactly how large it was but this was claimed to be the largest sperm whale in existence. Sperm whales can grow up to 90 feet so we imagine maybe twice that size. A ferocious sperm whale was found off the coast of Chile, in the 1830’s that was rumored to have taken 20 harpoons to take her down. 5. Adaro Imagine mermaids being a little more demon-like and that’s basically what an adaro is. This creature is apart of mythology from the Solomon Islands and are described as a man will gills behind his ears, tail fins for feet, a horn like a shark's dorsal fin with a sword fish growing out of his head like see in this photo. Doesn’t sound too inviting! They’re supposedly very dangerous like you could imagine and they come from the evil side of a person’s spirit. They travel in tropical storms and along rainbows and prey upon unsuspecting fishermen. 4. Ogopogo Also known as the Naitaka, is a cryptid lake monster said to live in lake Okanagan, British Columbia and was spotted by the natives of the land, known as first nations since the 19th century. It’s described as being 40-50 feet long. A cryptozoologists thought that it’s possible that the tribes were misinterpreting common animals such groups of eels, otters, and floating logs. Another sighting occurred in 1926 by about 30 people who all saw the same exact thing, and believed it was a legendary creature. More people are just claiming that their logs again after a mysterious video was made public in 2011. Could all these mysterious sitings really just be logs. Would it be too farfetched to believe a prehistoric creature, undisturbed by man lives in an isolated lake? Ogopogo has become a hit in pop culture especially in the local area. 3. The Megalodon Now we know that megaladon’s do exist but the real question is, are there possibly a few still out there somewhere? Probably not but legends certainly seem to float around quite often that these monsters are still lurking the oceans, somewhere. If you’re not frightened by a giant, 60 foot shark we’re not exactly sure what will. This thing was roaming the seas about 23 to 2.6 million years ago with gaping jaw over large enough that a person could stand inside, like we see here. Each tooth is about the size of your hand and they had 276 of these. They could certainly swallow you whole in one gulp without even taking a bite.. This is considered to be the most powerful vertebrate predator in the history of all time. These guys ate whales for breakfast and sea cows for a snack. Fossils of whales show huge bites ripped out of them. This beast needed a massive amount of food to stay alive and it certainly got just that when it was able to spot a potential prey with also the most powerful bite of any known species. This thing was just as fierce as you could possibly imagine. 2. Aspidochelene This fabled sea creature is actually a giant sea turtle that appears as an island or whale at first glance.When sailors get too close to this creature, it then destroys their ship. There are a few cultures that refer to this creature including the Inuit of Greenland, that would tip over the boats into freezing waters, causing the sailors to die as well as the one in Chile, that just simply devours everything in it’s path. Also interestingly enough, the name of the island in the pacific called tortuga literally translates to turtle because the Spanish because of the shape of the island while coming in on boat.. This cargo ship you see here in this slightly photoshopped photo is in serious trouble and is heading straight for a massive turtle monster in the ocean! While exploring the oceans, it easy to see how the unknown could lead to legends especially to scare new shipmates. 1. Humanoid Mermaids These legendary creatures with the lower half of fish and the upper half of a beautiful woman, are thought to be a part of the lustful imagination of sailors who’ve spent too much time out on the sea. However, coming across one wasn’t such a good sign. They were often thought to be a bad omen and these creatures would distract sailors, forcing them to crash into a cliffside or rock. While it might sound like an interesting tale, there have been sightings of mermaids all around the world and date as far back as 2000 BC during the Babylonian times. Here we see the Babylonian deity known as Oannes, the fish god. As a part

10 Living Fossils
 
08:15
From the rare deep sea goblin shark, to the tiny hula painted frog, here are 10 Living Fossils ! Fig Wasps -- Here’s an insect that suffered from a case of mistaken identity. In the 1920s, a fig wasp fossil dated 34 million years old was found, but incorrectly catalogued as an ant. When the fossil was re-analyzed in 2010 The Nautilus -- No, we’re not talking about Captain Nemo’s ship, or exercise equipment. This Nautilus is a marine mollusk that has basically stayed the same for the past half-billion years, give or take. These creatures first appeared during the late Cambrian period and later became a group of sea predators. They’re the last remaining cephalopods with a bony body structure that externalizes as a shell… unlike octopus and squid, their distant relatives. The nautilus is actually closer to cephalopods that first appeared 500 million years ago than the more modern creatures that showed up some 100 million years later The Hoatzin (hwat-seen) -- These birds engender some debate because their evolutionary tree seems to be missing a few branches … so to speak. About the size of a pheasant, they usually have a total length of 26 inches and are usually found in swamps and mangroves of South America’s Amazon and Orinoco Delta. Debate about the animal stems in part from certain characteristics that aren’t found in other birds … the chicks of the Hoatzin have claws at the ends of their wings, which helps them to climb up and cling to trees. Because the creature is so distinct, it’s actually been given its own family. Genetic research conducted in 2015 revealed the Hoatzin to be the sole surviving member of birds that flew off in their own direction some 64 million years ago. So we’ll admit it up front … this picture is photoshopped. The lady in the green pants has been seen in the same pose in that same exhibit with different animals digitally inserted in the display window. That said, it seems to be an alligator snapping turtle the lady is looking at. Maybe she’s fascinated by being face to face with a living fossil. With their beaklike jaws, spiked shells and thick scaled tails, they still look like prehistoric creatures … and are often referred to as ‘the dinosaurs of the turtle world.’ This reptile is one of the heaviest freshwater turtles on the planet, weighing around 176 lbs on average with a carapace, or shell length of 31 inches. The biggest-ever alligator snapping turtle was supposedly found in Kansas and weighed 403 lbs, but the claim was never verified. They’re one of North America’s largest freshwater turtles, with life spans up to 100 years! Given these animals have only one natural predator, the century-mark might be attainable. But that one predator is us. Humans capture these animals for their meat and shells … that has led to alligator snapping turtles being listed as a threatened species. Goblin Shark -- No wonder they put a good, old-fashioned scare into people … Goblin Sharks are ancient deep sea creatures, the last remaining member of of a family around 125 million years feetold. It’s easily identified by its pink skin, long, flat snout, and its powerful jaws, which can essentially pop out of its mouth and tear into their prey with its razor sharp teeth. The whole process looks like something from one of those “Alien” movies. They stay shrouded in mystery, since they prefer ice cold waters at depths up to 4300 feet. Think you’d like to run into one? Crocodilia (krok-a-dee-lee-ah) -- This is an order of mostly large, semiaquatic predatory reptiles that date back almost 84 million years ago to the late Cretaceous Period. As you might expect, this order includes crocodiles, alligators and various caiman (kay-man) families. The animals in this order are usually solidly built with elongated flattened snouts with ears, eyes and nostrils found at the tops of their heads. Other common characteristics include thick skin covered in scales, peg-like teeth and a powerful bite, and they’re largely carnivorous. Crocodilians can range in size from the smallest species, Cuvier’s Dwarf Caiman which grows under 5 feet long … to the largest species, the fearsome Saltwater Crocodile … which can measure up to 23 feet and weigh up to 2600 lbs. Of all living reptiles, this animal is the biggest. This apex predator is the most widely distributed of any modern croc, found from eastern India to southeast Asia to northern Australia. They’re considered the most dangerous living crocodilians to humans … and with the strongest bite force ever recorded, it’s no wonder why!

Crowds Cheer as Sea Turtles Return to the Sea | National Geographic

10 Oldest Living Creatures
 
08:18
From the elusive cave dwelling salamander, to the invincible koi fish, these are 10 of the OLDEST living creatures ! Koi -- Well known to inhabit decorative ponds, Koi are a domesticated and ornamental variety of the common carp. Certain varieties of koi are thought to live between 100-200 years. A famous red koi named “Hanako” reportedly lived to be 225 years old. Tortoise -- Tortoises are known for their longevity … but did you know the oldest tortoise lived to the ripe old age of 250 years old! Well, there is some controversy about that… But the story goes that Adwaita was captured in the Seychelles Islands in the 1700s, and was donated to the Alipore Zoo in India in 1875, and lived there -- outliving his keepers -- until 2006. Greenland Shark -- They’re also known as the Grey Shark or the Sleeper Shark … but they’re not as well known as the Great White although the Greenland rivals their size at over 20 feet long and weighing nearly 2500 pounds. One reason for the animal’s anonymity is their habitat. Native to North Atlantic waters, they prefer colder temperatures and tend to swim as deep as 2200 meters. And they’re thought to have long lifespans, possibly over 200 years. That number was arrived at when a shark was caught and tagged near Greenland in 1936. When it was recaptured in 1952, researchers found it had grown 6 cm longer. Following that formula, a mature 7-meter shark would be more than 200 years old. Ocean Quahog (qwa-hog) -- Much like the age of a tree can be deduced from its rings, these clams have dark concentric rings or banding on their shells that researchers interpret as annual marks. Judging from those rings, some specimens have been estimated at over 400 years old. In one notorious case from 2006, an ocean quahog clam nicknamed Ming was taken off the coast of Iceland. When its annual marks or growth rings were counted, the clam’s age was calculated at 405. When scientists opened the shell to study the animal’s insides, they effectively killed the clam. However, later analysis including carbon-14 dating proved the clam was actually 507 years old, making it the oldest individual animal whose age could be verified. It also earned Ming a Guinness Record for oldest mollusk. Ming, by the way, was named for the Chinese dynasty that was in power around the time it was born. Turritopsis Nutricula Jellyfish -- This animal might have actually found the fountain of youth. Endemic to the Caribbean Sea and the Mediterranean, it has the ability to cycle from mature adult stage to primordial birth stage, and back again … seemingly able to repeat the process endlessly. It’s the only species in the world capable of this sort of transformation. At this point researchers are unsure if the creature’s lifespan has any natural limit … maybe that’s why the creature is also known as the Immortal Jellyfish. Mata Mata Turtle -- In Spanish, the name “Mata Mata” translates to ‘kill kill’, and are found in the Amazon and Orinoco basins in South America. They’re identified by their unique neck which is actually longer than its vertebra. That long neck functions as a natural snorkel, allowing the animal to keep its nose above water while staying staying on the bottom of a stream. They can also stretch their neck and open their mouth wide to create a vacuum, enabling them to swallow fish whole, since their jaws aren’t able to chew food. As adults, they’re known to measure around around 18 inches and weigh up to 33 pounds, and are readily available in the exotic pet trade. If you want one, keep few things in mind: They have a steep price tag and they’re known to live between 40 to 75 years … if you really pamper them, they might make it past 100!. Sea Sponge -- In 2016, a massive sea sponge was found off the Hawaiian coast that measured 3.5 meters long, 1.5 meters wide and 2 meters high, residing over 2000 meters below the surface. That size gives it claim to be the world’s largest sponge … and possibly the oldest living animal in the world! You can see the creature in these pictures from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The images were captured by two remote operated vehicles. The research team that made the discovery hasn’t been able to determine an exact age for the sponge. However, researcher David Wagner said he’s encountered other huge coral species at these depths that can live to be a few thousand years old … with the oldest being 4500 years old!

What You Didn't Know About the World's Biggest Turtle
 
10:13
The Leatherback – a cool name for a cool turtle, and the world’s biggest! Today we learn more about this mighty creature that’s been swimming in our oceans for millions of years, having evolved from the first sea turtle 110-million years ago! 11 - Is it a boy or a girl? Well that will depend on how hot or cold their environment is when they were inside their eggs! Warmer temperatures tend to yield more female hatchlings, and the opposite for the male hatchlings. Only 85% of eggs will hatch, as sometimes there is no yolk inside to develop into an embryo. 10 - For the record… The first ever documented leatherback turtle was back in 1761, when Domenico Agostino Vandelli officially named it Testudo coriacea. It was found near Ostia, Rome and donated to the University of Padua for research. 9 - A real loner… Leatherback turtles are quite comfortable being alone, and tend to spend much of their time by themselves. They do tend conglomerate where there’s lots of food to eat, and that’s about it in terms of socializing. 8 - Breath in, breath out… Leatherback turtles are born on land as we already know, which means they are air-breathing animals, however, like all turtles, the leatherback spends most of its life in the ocean. The females only head to land to lay their eggs, and the males remain just off shore. 7 - Age old question… So, how long do they live for? They can live for as many as 80-years, but average anything between 30 and 40-years. 6 – Giving back… Leatherbacks that have washed up on shore and are decomposing, become microecosystems. A study was done on a carcass that had washed ashore, and it had been picked open by vultures. Then there was an infestation by carrion-eating beetles. Several other beetle families also invaded the corpse along with several types of flies. More than a dozen organisms consumed the carcass. 5 - How endangered are they? Very. There are various levels of endangerment for animals, and the Leatherback is listed as a “Species at Risk”. Self-explanatory not so? In 1980 it was estimated there were 120 000 nesting females around the globe, and now it is believed the number has been reduced to 35 000. Not good news. 4 - Who are they afraid of? Well, sharks for one. Big sharks of course, and Tiger sharks in particular are fond of a bit of turtle now and then. Killer whales are one of the other few marine predators who are capable of hunting an adult Leatherback. More danger lies on the ground the ground though. The vast majority of hatchlings don’t make it to maturity, and in fact a small percentage even reach the water after hatching from the sand nest. Crabs, birds, raccoons, wild cats, dogs, and even people enjoy turtle eggs. 3 - And they’re famous! There are quite a few famous fictional turtles from movies, stories, books and so on. In “Wonder pets” there is a kind and sensitive turtle called “Tuck” who is four years old. He is one of the favorite characters according to the kids who follow the series.Then there’s Verne, a tortoise from the animated hit, “Over the Hedge”. He is the voice of reason and leader of a group of animals whose environment is threatened by urban development. We also have Crush the Turtle from “Finding Nemo”, and his dad who is over 120 years old. They help Nemo to find his way home. kids have enjoyed “Sammy: A Turtle’s Tale” - Sammy is a sea turtle who adapts according the consequences of climate change and global warming. And I haven’t forgotten the Teenage Mutant Ninja turtles! 2 - The real deal... Have you looked inside a Leatherback’s mouth before? Of course not, that would be weird! It doesn’t have teeth, but row upon row of spiky inward pointing protrusions as part of its beak on the inside. Spines if you will. Keep your hands clear, as what goes in, does not come out. Many people did not believe that these spikes were real, so, Snopes had to investigate and they confirmed that all was legit. The esophagus is also lined with sharp prongs, helping to get that jellyfish down to their stomachs! 1...

Believe It or Not the Scariest Mouth in the World Belongs to a Species of Turtle
 
03:40
Read More: http://www.GistOnThis.com Here's one species of turtle you don't want to kiss. Believe me, the Leatherback Sea Turtle might look adorable and harmless, but lurking behind its cute face is a set of killer teeth, making its mouth one of the scariest in the world.. Hundreds of these jagged stalactite-like teeth called 'papillae' line the turtle's mouth and esophagus, all the way down to the gut. You just have to see it to believe it. The Leatherback is the third largest living reptile in the world, and also the largest turtle. It's actually a pretty docile creature, with a diet mainly consisting of jellyfish. In fact, the only reason it gets so huge is because it eats an astonishingly large number of the slow-moving jellies. Sometimes, the leatherback can consume about 73 percent of its own body weight in a single day, which is about 16,000 calories and three to seven times more than it needs to survive. Talk about binge eating! So why does this jelly-eating machine need a set of killer teeth, you ask? Well, the teeth gives it an evolutionary advantage. The sharp, pointy, backward-facing papillae actually prevent the slippery jelly from escaping by floating back out of the mouth. This means that the leatherback is able to eat all kinds of jellies -- right from the smallest swarms to the most massive ones like the Lion's Mane Jelly. This turtle species also has an unusually long esophagus that extends way past its stomach and all the way to the rear. Then it loops back up to connect to the stomach. So it's like a conveyor belt designed to catch, store and continuously process food. When a baby leatherback first makes an appearance in the world, it is just a tiny hatchling about 3-inches long. But thanks to all the water-rich jellies it consumes in its lifetime, it can grow to an average of four to six ft. long. Now, if you're thinking that the humungous turtle does nothing but eat and laze around all day, you're wrong. The leatherback turtle is a migratory species, travelling over 10,000 miles a year. It needs all the energy it can get to cover such large distances. And since jellyfish aren't exactly energy-boosting foods, the leatherback's best bet is to stuff its face with as many jellies as it can manage in one go. Unfortunately, despite its brilliantly designed digestive system, the leatherback is unable to differentiate between jellyfish and plastic trash floating in the water that gets stuck in its huge papillae. This is becoming a huge cause of concern as the fascinating creature is facing extinction. Serious efforts are made to preserve the species and I sure do hope they succeed.

WORLD'S BIGGEST TORTOISE - real or fake?
 
04:17
Hey Guys Bill here. Have you ever noticed how Youtube is filled with all these claims of world’s biggest — like world’s biggest shark or world’s biggest snake — there’s even a video out there claiming to show the world’s biggest pimple! Last week, a follower on Twitter named random guy sent me a picture of what claims to be the world’s biggest tortoise that was found in the Amazon region of South America. Random guy, that is a huge huge tortoise… and I can understand why you want to know if it is real… or if it is fake… So why don’t we get under the shell on this thing and see what we can find out. On the surface, I think we can discount that this turtle is in the Amazon… If we take a closer look at the picture, we see a few things that would indicate the creature is actually in Japan. Now, while the sign right here could be anywhere, this police man, and that police car, are clean matches for Japan. The people watching the event also look more japanese than south american. But what would the world’s biggest tortoise be doing in Japan? I took the picture and ran it through my favorite reverse image search engine to see what showed up. There were a ton of hits on this thing…. and after looking though most of them, I have the answer right here! Can you guess what it is? Ok yell it out right now so everyone around you can hear it! And you can’t cheat….

Baby Leatherback sea turtle rescued from being under the sand for three days. The Leatherback Turtle is the largest turtle in the sea. It is endangered and watched over very closely by the Volusia County Turtle Patrol Each spring, sea turtles come ashore to lay eggs in a deep hole in the sand they dig with their hind flippers. On this day in mid July, three days after the turtles hatch, the officials from the Turtle Patrol, come by to dig up the nest to count the turtles which were successful and made it to the surface. Some, however do not make it, but occasionally a few hatch but do not quite make it to the surface. This is the story of "Reggie" who was brought to the surface, given cpr and set on its course to the ocean. Enjoy! Hope you "like" it.

12 MOST Dangerous Turtles Ever
 
10:13
As if there wasn't enough to be afraid of in the world already--here are the world's most DANGEROUS turtles! Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr #6 Carbonemys With a shell measuring nearly 6 feet wide, this creature would have been one of the largest turtles ever. Its fossils have been recovered in Colombia, where it lived some 60 million years ago during the Mid to Late Paleocene. Although smaller than Archelon and Stupendemys, this had to be a tough critters tough, given that it co-existed with the enormous snake Titanoboa, as well as large crocodiles. Experts think the creature had tremendously powerful jaws that could have clamped down on almost any type of prey … which included crocs and mollusks. The animal could have survived by taking out its competitors in the area. And speaking of tough, did you know that turtles were among the few animals that survived the K-T Extinction Event some 66 million years ago? Tough indeed. #5 African Helmeted Turtle Also known as the Marsh Terrapin this reptile lives in stagnant and fresh waters in sub-Saharan Africa. Their carapace can range in size from about 8 to 12 inches, and they appear innocuous enough. But they’re also called the Crocodile Turtle for the feeding behavior they can exhibit. This is the only turtle species that is known to attack in groups. WHen larger prey including water birds, snakes, or other species of turtles are within range, these omnivorous critters will launch an assault on the prey, capture it, and drown it. To the human eye, it can appear like a swarm of crocodiles attacking. #4 Loggerhead Turtles After the leatherback sea turtle, this is the second largest extant turtle in the world. … they generally weigh up to about 440 pounds with a length of more than 3 feet. The greatest weight documented was more than 1,200 pounds. That serves to make them the largest hard-shelled turtle in the world as well. And they are widely distributed throughout the world’s seas. They’re noted for their powerful jaws and for having an aggressive temperament … at last where the females are concerned. Female to female aggression is fairly unusual with marine vertebrates, but it seems to be common with loggerheads. Conflicts occur over feeding grounds, with the confrontations escalating until the turtles start snapping their huge jaws at one another. The standoff will often end with one combatant chasing off the other. This territorial behavior has also been observed with captive specimens … and conflicts occur with other sea turtles as well.. #3 Leatherback Sea Turtle This creature is the largest of all extant turtles … and at more than 1,500 pounds and measuring over 7 feet long, it’s also the world’s fourth heaviest modern reptile as well. Instead of a hard shell, they have a series of bony plates that is covered by a leathery, oily skin. Along with its hydrodynamic, tear shaped body, this creature is noted for its mouth … The creatures have no teeth, so instead of chewing its food the turtle uses its upper lip … and down its throat are a series of backwards-facing spines that not only help it swallow its food …. But also serves as a means of preventing the prey from escaping! That’s bad news for jellyfish in particular … that seems to be the favored cuisine of the animals … and they’ll often dive at depths exceeding 1000 meters to pursue their meal. They’re also pretty adventurous, found in waters from Alaska, to New Zealand. #2 Common Snapping Turtle This big turtle can be found from Canada to Florida … so the freshwater critter seems to favor its share of adventure. It’s notorious for its aggressive disposition when taken out of the water. Its beak like jaws are powerful, and its head and neck are exceptionally mobile. Adults can weigh up to 35 pounds, with a rugged carapace that measures more than 18 inches. Usually favoring ponds or streams, they typically don’t have many predators … But they actively hunt down prey including fish, frogs, and small mammals. Since they’re at the top of the food chain in their environment, the common snapper is not too easily perturbed. When encountering a human in the water, the turtles will often swim quietly away. But if they’re caught, they can become extremely aggressive … and can deliver a bite strong enough to amputate your finger. So if you see them in the wild, it’s best to respect the snapper’s space! 1...

Fin Whale The fin whale is the second largest creature on Earth after the blue whale. It has been severely affected by commercial whaling and now it is rare to see one. If you have seen one, consider yourself lucky! They can grow as long as 89 feet (27 m) in length and can weigh between 40 to 80 tons! The maximum ever recorded weighed in at 114 tons!! They can live to be over 100 years old if left alone. The fin whale’s body is built for speed and it can even go faster than the fastest ocean steamship. It’s capable of speeds of up to 37 km/h but can go short bursts of even 47 km/h, earning it the nickname “greyhound of the sea”. Fin Whales have a very unique coloring with the right underside of their jaw, right lip, and the right side of their baleen being a yellowish-white, while the left-side is gray, making them look asymmetrical. Fun fact, fin whales and blue whales make the lowest frequency sounds of any animals. When they were first recorded by submarines, scientists thought they were tectonic plates grinding. Kind of makes you wonder about what is causing other mysterious ocean sounds! 9.) Portuguese Man of War While this is often considered a jellyfish, the Portuguese man-of-war is actually not an “it” but a “they”! It is made up of a colony of organisms called polyps that work together known as a siphonophore. While the tentacles can extend 165 feet (50 m), the average is about 30 feet (9 m) long. Still nothing to scoff at!! Also known as “the floating terror”, their body is between 5 inches to a foot wide (13 cm- 130 cm). They are usually found in groups of about a thousand or more, and have no independent means of movement. They either drift on the currents or catch the wind, so even though you should be super careful of jellyfish, they aren’t ever out to get you on purpose! The tentacles on a man-of-war are extremely venomous and very painful if you get stung but they are rarely deadly. The venom is typically used to paralyze their prey, such as small fish and other smaller creatures. Also keep in mind that a man-of-war does not need to be alive in order to give off a powerful sting, even if it has washed up on shore and looks dead, it can still sting you! The Portuguese man-of-war floats around the Atlantic Ocean, as well as the Indian and Pacific. So keep an eye out if you are swimming around these areas! 8.) Giant Clam The giant clam is the largest living bivalve mollusk on earth. (Bivalve mollusks include clams, oysters, and mussels). Native to the warm waters of Australia's Great Barrier Reef, giant clams are capable of growing an average of 4 feet (1 m) in length and weighing close to 500 pounds (250 kg)! However, some species of clams have been known to grow as long as 6 feet. The large majority of a giant clam’s mass is in its shell, with the soft parts accounting for only approximately 10% of the weight. Giant clams are now endangered because they apparently are also quite delicious and have been hunted for centuries for its healthy protein. The giant clam has one chance to find its perfect home because once it chooses its spot, it stays there for the rest of its life. They can live up to 100 years or more, as long as they are in the wild. Most of the giant clams you see today have been raised in captivity and are really popular in large aquariums. Giant clams achieve their enormous proportions by consuming the sugars and proteins produced by the billions of algae that live in their tissues. This symbiotic relationship protects the algae and they are responsible for the unique coloration. No two giant clams are alike! 7.) Great White Shark According to National Geographic, great white sharks are the largest predatory fish in the world. They grow to an average of 15 feet (4.6 m) in length. However, there have been some who have grown to 20 feet (6 m) in length! In fact, the largest Great White Shark ever recorded in the wild was estimated to be 26 feet long, which is more than half the length of a basketball court. Combine this with a bunch of teeth, and this is why people get so scared. They are known to weigh up to 5,000 pounds (2268 kg). The heaviest Great White Shark ever recorded in the wild was estimated to weigh in at a whopping 7,328 pounds. .

Playa Grande, the largest of the beaches in Las Baulas National Park, is not only well known for surf breaks and stunning sunsets but also for visits from nesting turtles like this leatherback sea turtle. Playa Grande, Playa Ventanas and Playa Langosta, are all part of Las Baulas National Park (Parque Nacional Marino Las Baulas). The Park protects one of the most important nesting beaches for the East Pacific leatherback turtle, a population designated as critically endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). Park Rangers, local guides, members of local communities, researchers and volunteers are working hard to save these turtles from extinction, as well as to protect the local wildlife and flora.
