Do sea turtles live as long as Crush in Finding Nemo?

Yes. Scientists have not been able to determine the lifespan of sea turtles, since they tend to outlive humans, and therefore any research projects. Also, tagging and monitoring is a fairly new technology, so consistent, reliable data has not yet become available. Nonetheless, sea turtles as believed to live for up to a century, and quite possibly longer. Unfortunately, many sea turtles involved in research are likely to die from a variety of threats such as being entangled in fishing line or nets, being illegally poached for their meat and shells, and from pollution and ingesting rubbish.

How do you tell a female snapping turtle from a male?

The difference between a female snapping turtle and a male snapping turtle is the difference in their tales. Each snapping turtle has a small cirlce looking shape on theie tale. If it is a female snapping turtle, it's circle will be closer to the shell (or the butt) an if it is a male snapping turtle, the circle will not neccesarily be at the end of the tail, but it is certainly not near the shell (or butt). With most snapping turtles, it should be obvious, but with some, it is hard to tell, especially if their newborns (a week old or younger).

Do sharks eat sea horses?

Only by accident. Predators of seahorses include larger fish such as sea-perch, cod, flathead, tuna and snapper and trumpeter-fish. Other predators include skates and rays. Fishermen catch them for the lucrative Chinese market, for medicines and tourist curios. Sharks have been known to eat seahorses, depending on the species of shark. However, on the whole, they prefer to eat larger prey such as bigger fish than seahorses, rays, other sharks, seals, octopuses, squid and sea turtles. They are opportunistic feeders, meaning that if schools of seahorses present themselves as easy opportunity, they would eat them. But since seahorses camouflage and have the ability to change their colour, it is unlikely that sharks would spot such small creatures.
