Zoo To You

  1. 1. Zoo To You Our Very Own In-School Field Trip November 17, 2009
  2. 2. Here we are learning how to determine the gender of a turtle. The belly of the male is concave (or flat) and the belly of a female is convex (or rounder).
  3. 3. The Red-Eared Slider Turtle and Malayan Box Turtle <ul><li>Students listened to a </li></ul><ul><li>presentation about the Red-Eared </li></ul><ul><li>Slider Turtle and the Malayan Box </li></ul><ul><li>Turtle . Evidently, the Red-Eared Slider Turtle used to be a more common pet until the Box Turtle was introduced to Asia. The Red-Eared Slider Turtle is more aggressive and grows to be larger in size, so the Box Turtle is a more logical choice for a household pet. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Tortoises vs. Turtles <ul><li>We looked at the legs of these two reptiles. Tortoises legs are designed for walking and Turtle’s legs are designed for swimming. Most turtles only leave the water to lay their eggs. </li></ul>Tortoise Turtle
  5. 5. The African Ball Python <ul><li>We learned that the African Ball Python is NOT venemous. Instead, it coils itself tightly around its prey so they cannot breathe. </li></ul>
