Sea Turtle Facts
From loggerheads to leatherbacks to , many of the species of sea turtles are endangered and threatened by people. Ultimately, the turtles constantly face many dangers, during their lives in the ocean — including possible capture or getting entangled in fishing gear , loss of feeding site from development of the coastal areas and even pollution.
These amazing animals are very comfortable in the sea, but need air to survive. They very in size, from the different species — from smallish at less than 80-100 pounds, to very large, scaling in at more than 1,000 pounds.
Diet and Habitat
Turtles are found in every sea in the world in tropical and subtropical climates. They travel long distances in their journeys through the oceans. Some span the Pacific from Japan and travel to Baja, Mexico before swimming home again. Some turtles can handle cold water ( under 40 ° F) and are found off of Chile and Alaska.
They live their lives in the ocean , except for when they go into to the shore to lay eggs. After 2 months, the baby turtles (“puppies”) leave their the nest and head the ocean. Young turtles spend a couple of years out in the deep ocean, then head to the protection of nearshore waters and bays.
Diet varies depending on species: Leatherbacks love to eat jellyfish and soft-bodied creatures; other types like crabs and molluscs;some types live on sponges and invertebrates; and Kemp ridley devour crabs.
These are ancient animals and have been on this planet for 100 million years — even outlasting the dinosaurs that became extinct70 million years back. They now face some of their greatest threats yet, because of the overpopulation of man on this planet.
Sea turtles will usually drown if tangled in fishing nets. Human development on coasts destroy nesting sites, destroy coral reefs, and city lights distract baby turtles away from deep sea. Pollution fools turtles by looking like jellyfish and is eaten, which will block their intestines. In many countries, they are killed for their meat and shells .
Healthy Vegan Recipes
I wanted to share a great secret with everyone of my readers. The secret of having a healthy lifestyle. On of the major components of owning a healthy lifestyle is eating and choosing to eat only foods that come straight out of mother earth. Mother nature is the force that supplies all the wholesome materials that are needed to build your body as a nearly indestructible mechanism that will maintain itself for many, many years in tiptop form as long as you follow her guidelines. The food that springs out of our earth is already in a perfect form to allow us to absorb all the nutrients that our bodies require without adding unnatural man made laboratory generated additives and modifications. The purer the source to being as god intended the more easily your body will absorb the nutrients needed to keep your body in healthful, tiptop form. Another aspect of natures fulfillment is the ability to acquire your needed nutrients without killing and ingesting other sentient beings. Our brothers in the animal world deserve our protection, and many species actually look to us in trust that we will not betray them by slaughtering and eating them. This act of maintaining a custodial relationship with animals on our earth can only help move us closer to perfection in the great karmic wheel that we call life.

Finding the Perfect Doghouse
My good friend Joanne asked me for help, being that she was having trouble finding the perfect dog house for her ‘better half’, Georgie, a 95 pound German Shepherd that she rescued from the local dog pound back in February of this year. She came to me because she had heard about my astoundingly good internet research skills. I am known to all my circle of friends as a problem solver and knowledge obtainer. The criteria for her search was not just an ordinary ‘dog house’, but one which would provide maximum comfort in both summer and winter months, being that we get the worst of both worlds here in Arizona, freezing cruel winters and sizzling hot summers. The challenge was made easier because of my knowledge of great websites chock full of knowledge such as Shopallpets.com specializes in reviewing and recommending all sorts of pet products, so I knew just where to go to find the information that would help Joanne find what she was looking for. I jogged on over to shopallpets.com and got a little lost in an overload of information. It was a good hour before I finally logged out of my session, but not before I bookmarked several great and interesting looking pet products that looked interesting. It’s always fun to find new products on the market so you can “keep up with the Joneses”.
Advantages of an insulated dog house
In researching the differences in doghouse, I relied heavily on the information that I got on this insulated dog house reviews page. I like a good review page that can illustrate the major benefits of a particular product as well as contrast the various differences in the products being showcased. I am now aware of the great benefits to having an insulated doghouse over just having a basic, barebones shed style dog house. The big differences that these specially designed houses will make are the ones that your dog won’t be able to tell you about, because he can’t talk. But if you are obsrevant you will notice a few things, like how he has been wagging his tail more lately, or how he spends alot of his free time these days lounging around in his new found palace.
