Coahuilan Box Turtle
Transcript of Coahuilan Box Turtle
(Aquatic Box Turtle) What are they? What do they look like? Where do they live? Habitat-World Aquatic box turtles live mainly in streams, marshes and ponds. Most of their life is spent in water and about 90% of the day they're in water. They live in a small part of Mexico called Coahuila. What do they eat? They are one of the 25 most
endangered turtle species and
there is about 2000 left on the planet. Why are they endangered? They are endangered because
of loss of habitat, poaching,
pollution and diseases. How can we save them? We can save them by leaving them in their natural habitats,
by not adopting them,
making them have to change
their way of life. How do they live? Kept as a pet they eat mostly crickets,
vegetables, fruits, and plants.
While still in the
wild they eat insects, snails,
fish, plants, and fruits.
They are near the bottom of the food chain because they only eat things smaller than them and because larger animals like hawks and big cats eat them. How many are left?
