Does the turtle grow with the shell?
yes turtles do grow with the shell because they are connected to the shell and it grows up to 12 inches
i think it would grow with the turtle and then when it is an adult the shell would be fully grown
a turtle can never out grow its shell. the shell grows also.
Does the shell grow with the body your turtle is getting fatter under shell and shell is still same size?
yes the shell will grow with the turtle,, but you may be feeding to much ?if its getting to fat
yes the shell grows
No - the shell expands with the growth of the turtle.
it grows its shell by eating its own poo and drinking its own pee and then acts like its dead 2 weeks later it will start to grow its shell . for more info call doctor turtle at 0456735427
actually, yes...it is alright that your turtle is shedding it's shell. that means it is getting bigger. Look at it as if it were a little child. Children grow out of clothes so they need to go get new one...well turtle grow out of their shell but instead of getting a new one(besides their shell is part of their body...it is like a bone) they just shead to make more room for them to grow.
A turtles shell is a part of its' body made out of bone. Turtles grow their own shells.
I am going to assume you meant either 'what is it made of' or 'how is it formed' so I will answer this way to hopefully answer your question either way... It is actually a part of the skeletal structure of the turtle and grows with the turtle as it grows, much the same as our ribs (which is what the shell of a turtle is) would grow when we grow. It is mostly bone… Read More
No, a turtle shell is just protection for the turtle.
You don't. That's like saying "How do you feed a human with only water?" A turtle needs UVB and UVA light no matter what, they can't live without it. It is what allows them their shell to grow. If they don't have UVB or UVA light, their body will grow until their shell can't take it anymore and 'pop', dead turtle.
well as the turtle gets older and bigger and the shell does not grow then it would be a big turtle with a small shell and you have to remember there shell is how they protect them selves from danger they tuck in there tail, arms, legs, and head . just think about when we humans grow our nose gets bigger our fingers gets bigger every thing does same with turtles........by away i have 2… Read More
An alligator could eat a turtle in its shell, and a shark could eat a sea turtle in its shell.
Turtles do not 'get into' their shells, they are born in their shells which are part of their bodies (they can not come off) and their shells grow with them.
no they cant they arent like snails or even hermit crabs whom which can change their shell frequently. turtle shells grow with the turtle inside it. its like a life time thing. and incase you havent known, a sea turtle can live up to 100 years old and higher. turtles use their shells for protection.
No, With turtles the shell is part of the animal's bone structure and is alive. The platelets making up the shell grow with the animal and you can age the turtle by counting the rings making up the platelets.
As with any turtle the turtle shell is called CARAPACES.
No, a damaged turtle shell does not heal.
Becuase the shell is a vital organ of the turtle, something it does not grow out of. The pealing is like when us humans grow sometimes our skin peels a little. That's just it growing with us, just as the shell grows with the trurtle.
No, a turtle cannot leave it's shell. It is attached to the inside of the shell. It will however keep growing bigger as the turtle grows bigger.
Well the shell is very helpful when it comes to defense for a predator, it is the turtles home and the turtle is connected to the shell, so the shell grows with the turtle
INCORRECT No, they don't get fat. If you feed them too much, they just keep growing bigger and bigger and bigger. Think about it: if a turtle got fat, it wouldn't be able to fit in its shell. And turtles are not like hermit crabs; they can't leave their shells and find new ones. So, the shell has to grow with the turtle. So instead of getting fat, they just keep getting bigger. No. Turtles… Read More
If a turtle does not have a shell, it can be both naked and homeless.
If a turtle loses its shell it is naked, homeless and dead because the turtle's spine is in its shell.
Both contain bone but most turtle shells would be harder than an armadillo's shell.
The turtle is a reptile. It's unique feature is it's shell. The turtle is attached to it's shell by muscles in it's back. The turtle can "retreat" into its shell when it feels threatened or when danger comes. The shell is built so that, if the attacker turns the turtle upside down, the turtle can turn itself right side up. Turtles are cool that way.
Every turtle has a different shell, bumpier, smoother, or lighter.
No it cannot. The shell is part of the turtle. I might get this wrong so sorry for that.
yes it is normal for one to chip its shell. it means there shells are starting to grow again.
yes only if it's bits and pieces. if it's a large crack and bleeds, then eventually the turtle will die.
turtles have shells because animals that eat turtles can't eat the turtle because it has a strong shell.
To protect the turtle.
it protects the turtle from predators.
The turtles shell protects itself and hides inside its shell when in danger or when they are scared. The shell helps the turtle breathe. The turtles shell is another way to breathe for them.
A turtle or a snail have a shell.
It's sort of both because they snap or bite like a crocodile, and it has croc ridges on it's shell. It's like a turtle because it has a shell like a turtle and can tuck into it's shell like a turtle. so a Crocodile Snapping Turtle is a mix of a turtle and a crocodile.
She was born with a shell, a turtle like shell. She thought she was a turtle so growing up she made people call her 'Turtle' Then as she got older she realised she was not a turtle.
They don't grow out of it. There are some people who paint on the shells of little turtles for decoration, but this will eventually kill the turtle. There are pores on the shell, just like there are pores on our skin. The shell stops growing if these pores are painted over, and the turtle continues growing until it is too large for the painted shell. It's like a person was given an hard outfit of… Read More
A dead turtle.
the structure of turtle is like a shell
A turtle is a vertebrate. Their spine is attached to the roof of the inside of their shell. That is why it's physically impossible for a turtle to shed shells or jump in and out of their shell.
The difference between these two is that an armadillo's shell is harder than a turtle, and a armadillo is a mammal and a turtle is a reptile. They also are in a shell.
My red bellied turtle has suddenly gotten a soft shell. Is he ok?
turtle shell i like well strong that you could balance your self on it and it wouldn't break
The turtle family is very diffrent, the teeth of crocodile can drag out the turtle from its shell.
The turtles shield is called a shell. The upper shell of the turtle is called the carapace. The lower shell that encases the belly is called the plastron.
It is in the clock and it is the shell of a turtle
no a turtle does not shed its shell
A reptile with a shell can be a turtle or a turtoise.
Yes. Eagles grab the turtle, then fly high in the air. Then they drop the turtle on it's shell from high above to break the shell and get to the "Meat".
