The Most Striking Facts About Lizards And The Jamaican Slider Turtle


 
Business
Lizards are members of the class reptilian and share several similarities with snakes. It is suggested that these animals are some of the oldest creatures to have existed on earth and are estimated to have inhabited the earth as early as 200 million years past. It is estimated that the number of known lizard species is stands at 4675 globally and includes geckos, monitors and chameleons.

Lizards and their perception of environmental stimuli

Majority of the known lizards have well developed eyes with structures such as eyelids in place, possess an ability to blink and close the eyes while a few do not have an eye covering inform of the eyelid. Most of the lizards use their tongues in cleaning the eye and uses their sense of sight to differentiate colors which are used for communication.

The lizards use their tongues to smell or taste different substances including food, mates and enemies in their environment by sticking the tongue out then pulling the objects to the mouth roof which has the special cells used for smelling and tasting.

The lizards lack an eardrum and instead have special openings that are used for capturing sound waves while their eardrums are located underneath their skin surfaces. However it is noted that their sense of sound is clearer and developed than that of snakes.

Lizards take residence in several places including trees, burrows, water and on the ground with each having special adaptations depending on its place of residence.

Being common target by predators, lizards have developed sophisticated escape tactics that range from camouflaging and change of colors. However when they are faced by dire danger they remain immobile for notable long periods and easily shade off the weak tail end to allow them have an easy time for escape, which will later rejuvenate but not in exact resemblance of the first.

The life and behavior of the Jamaican slider Turtle

TheJamaican slider Turtlelives mainly in the Bahamas and Jamaican island and so the source of their name and is mostly found in fresh water. A grown male measures 7.9 inches whereas the female is slightly larger with a full grown length of about 11 inches. Newborns are known to possess brightly colored markings which gradually fade away as they mature to adulthood of which the prominent color takes on shades of brown and olive with minimal markings visible.

Since most people with the love of these turtles keep them as pets, it is important that you provide them with proper housing which includes fresh water in a sizeable container depending on their age and size. The container must also be emptied form time to time to keep it clean with some babbles placed at the bottom to keep them busy digging through alongside having a place for relaxation.

The Jamaican turtles are known to display omnivorous eating habits though they eat less meat as they age. Provision of water animals in their diet alongside vegetables is therefore a good diet for them.
