Happy World Turtle Day

 

World Turtle Day has coincidentally fallen on a Wednesday, or a Humpday, this year, so we’re celebrating beautifully arching turtle shell humps today.

 

 

The earliest known turtles date from 215 million years ago,making turtles one of the oldest reptile groups.  Today, turtles face many threats, including habitat destruction, harvesting for consumption and pet trade, and as a result, between 48 to 54% of all 328 of their species are considered threatened.  It is up to us to protect these reptilian ancient wonders of the world.

    Article writing is also a fun, if you know then you can write otherwise it is complex to write.
