Their range extends across principal and eastern China, as well North and South Korea, Taiwan and Japan, wherein they inhabit lakes, ponds and small streams. This species indicates a preference for slow-moving or nevertheless water with smooth bottoms, plentiful aquatic vegetation and enough basking web sites. It has also been recorded in swamps, marshes and even flooded rice paddies.Although there appears to be several distinct morphological bureaucracy (as might be predicted with a extensive-ranging species like M. Reevesii), their habits and requirements are very comparable. For the motive of captive husbandry, they may all be cared for in the equal manner.

Turtles are a species of reptile at its evolutionary zenith, with an ancient lineage stretching back over 200 million years. Under their unmistakable shells, testament to their survival, they harbor a natural history of epochal proportions. This is the engrossing story Turtles tells. The book offers a full account of the evolution, history, diversity, ecology, and behavior of the turtle, and of the problems facing these reptiles worldwide. The book describes the important role turtles play in their ecosystems, as well as the pressures put upon current populations by habitat destruction, over-collection for the pet trade, and increasing consumption for food. Accompanying Franklins text are photographs and illustrations testifying to the colorful diversity of the 300 species of turtle known to inhabit forest, mountains, prairies, rivers, lakes, and oceans of the world--70 within the United States alone. Appendices provide contact information for turtle organizations, as well as a listing of all extant chelonians.

The Biology and Identification of the Coccidia (Apicomplexa) of Turtles of the World is an invaluable resource for researchers in protozoology, coccidia, and parasitology, veterinary sciences, animal sciences, zoology, and biology. This first-of-its-kind work offers a taxonomic guide to apicomplexan parasites of turtles that enables easy parasite identification, with a summary of virtually everything known about the biology of each known parasite species. It is an important documentation of this specific area, useful to a broad base of readers, including researchers in biology, parasitology, animal husbandry, diseases of wild and domestic animals, veterinary medicine, and faculty members in universities with graduate programs in these areas. There are about 330 turtle species on Earth; many are endangered, a growing number of species are kept as pets, and some are still used as food by humans. Turtles, like other vertebrate animals have many different kinds of parasites (viruses, bacteria, protozoa, worms, arthropods, and others). Coccidiosis in turtles has prevented large-scale turtle breeding, and represents a serious problem in need of control. This succinct and highly focused book will aid in that effort. Offers line drawings and photomicrographs of each parasite from each hosts species Provides methods of identification and treatment Presents a complete historical rendition of all known publications on coccidia (and their closest relatives) from all turtle species on Earth, and evaluates the scientific and scholarly merit of each Provides a complete species analysis of the known biology of every coccidian described from turtles Reviews the most current taxonomy of turtles and their phylogenetic relationships needed to help assess host-specificity and evaluate what little cross-transmission work is available

Titles in the Family Pet Series offer basic information to families and children who have little or no experience with pets. The books are easy to read and understand, yet are filled with practical advice and answers to questions that both inexperienced pet owners and kids are certain to ask. Turtles and Tortoises advises on the care of these interesting animals and tells how to distinguish one from the other. Freshwater tortoises have high and more rounded shell shapes than pet freshwater turtles, and unlike turtles, they do not swim. The author advises on the best places to obtain turtles and tortoises, what to feed them, how to set up a minipond, how to understand the animal’s body language, and even how to breed these creatures. There are tips on dealing with problems, including skin shedding, and the tendency of some animals to bite one another when kept as pairs. Here is everything that beginning pet owners need to know about the care of these fascinating reptiles. Full-color photos and attractive sidebars on nearly every page.
