Turtle and Tortoise Printouts


Archelon
was a car-sized marine turtle (a chelonian) that lived when the dinosaurs did, during the late Cretaceous period. Primitive turtles evolved over 250 million years ago, during the early Permian period.
Turtles and tortoises are reptiles found worldwide. They have a hard shell protecting their body. The top shell is called the carapace; the bottom is called the plastron. The shell is covered with scutes, scales that are made of keratin (the same protein that our fingernails are made of).

Some turtles live on land, others spend most of their lives in the seas, retrning to the shore only to reproduce. Turtles hatch from eggs; there is no parental care.

Many turtles can retract their head, 4 limbs, and tail into the shell for protection. They have a beak but no teeth, and no external ears, just two small holes on the sides of the head.

In addition to printing the animals, you can copy a printout (click here for instructions) and paste it into a painting program (like Paint) and color the animal there. (Thanks to Grace P. from Thorngrove School for this great idea.)
