World's Largest Sea Turtle! Giant Leatherback Sea Turtle!

World's Largest Sea Turtle! Giant Leatherback Sea Turtle! https://youtu.be/6u5NqrKG3dA I know this is not our usual content, but could you imagine if we could get this turtle on our side? GO TEAM USA! Minigun Turtle! Make sure to subscribe to the channel! Leatherback turtles have the most hydrodynamic body design of any sea turtle, with a large, teardrop-shaped body. A large pair of front flippers powers the turtles through the water. Like other sea turtles, the leatherback has flattened fore limbs adapted for swimming in the open ocean. Claws are absent from both pairs of flippers. The leatherback's flippers are the largest in proportion to its body among extant sea turtles. Leatherback's front flippers can grow up to 2.7 m (8.9 ft) in large specimens, the largest flippers (even in comparison to its body) of any sea turtle. The leatherback has several characteristics that distinguish it from other sea turtles. Its most notable feature is the lack of a bony carapace. Instead of scutes, it has thick, leathery skin with embedded minuscule osteoderms. Seven distinct ridges rise from the carapace, crossing from the cranial to caudal margin of the turtle's back. Leatherbacks are unique among reptiles in that their scales lack β-keratin. The entire turtle's dorsal surface is colored dark grey to black, with a scattering of white blotches and spots. Demonstrating countershading, the turtle's underside is lightly colored. Instead of teeth, the leatherback turtle has points on the tomium of its upper lip, with backwards spines in its throat to help it swallow food and to stop its prey from escaping once caught. Oesophagus of a leatherback sea turtle showing spines to retain prey D. coriacea adults average 1–1.75 m (3.3–5.7 ft) in curved carapace length (CCL), 1.83–2.2 m (6.0–7.2 ft) in total length, and 250 to 700 kg (550 to 1,540 lb) in weight. In the Caribbean, the mean size of adults was reported at 384 kg (847 lb) in weight and 1.55 m (5.1 ft) in CCL. Similarly, those nesting in French Guiana, weighed an average of 339.3 kg (748 lb) and measured 1.54 m (5.1 ft) in CCL. The largest verified specimen ever found was discovered in the Pakistani beach of Sanspit and measured 213 cm (6.99 ft) in CCL and 650 kg (1,433 lb) in weight, a previous contender, the "Harlech turtle", was purportedly 256.5 cm (8.42 ft) in CCL and 916 kg (2,019 lb) in weight however recent inspection of its remains housed at the National Museum Cardiff have found that its true CCL is around 1.5 m (4.9 ft), casting doubt on the accuracy of the claimed weight, as well. On the other hand, a scientific paper claimed that the species can weigh up to 1,000 kg (2,200 lb) without providing more verifiable detail. The leatherback turtle is scarcely larger than any other sea turtle upon hatching, as they average 61.3 mm (2.41 in) in carapace length and weigh around 46 g (1.6 oz) when freshly hatched. D. coriacea exhibits several anatomical characteristics believed to be associated with a life in cold waters, including an extensive covering of brown adipose tissue, temperature-independent swimming muscles, countercurrent heat exchangers between the large front flippers and the core body, and an extensive network of countercurrent heat exchangers surrounding the trachea.

MOST Terrifying Animal Mouths
 
10:55
From scary crocs and hippos to bizarre aliens and mutants; Here are 25 MOST Terrifying Animal Mouths Gharial (GUR-ee-uhl) You could say this critter has a big mouth … but it’s more accurate to say it has a LONG mouth, one that’s filled with over 100 sharp teeth! Their signature long, thin snouts are thought to be an adaptation to their diet, which is primarily fish. Sharks -- These fearsome creatures are more than familiar to us … but you don’t want to be too familiar with those big mouths filled with scary choppers. These animals have on average 15 rows of teeth. The Great White has around 24 teeth exposed along their top and bottom jaws. Hippo This almost looks like you’re on some sort of ride at the amusement park … or maybe taking a roller coaster ride into the pit of hell. It’s really the scary looking mouth of a hippo. Chances are, if you take a ride down that critter’s throat, it’ll be a one-way trip! The aggressive animals are also known for having the largest canines of any land animal. Those two sword-like teeth can reach 16 inches (40cm) long! Goose Mouth It would be too easy to believe that this was the creation of a warped mind playing around with Photoshop. After all, who could take a cute goose and make it look like it had been possessed by the Alien Xenomorph? But the picture hasn’t been manipulated … Geese really do have tongues with serrated teeth -- even if it looks more like a bizarre tentacle coming out of its mouth. Who knew these birds had such fowl mouths? Sarcastic Fringehead This bizarre creature almost looks like it could be a hybrid of the alien in Predator and the Reaper vampires from the “Blade” movies. But they’re really fish that are known to be highly territorial and aggressive. When threatened, it will expand its huge mouth and start flexing and snapping its jaws at an aggressor Scale Worm (Polychaeta) A lot of deep sea creatures can appear like aliens, and this one is no exception. It could easily be an alien life form, or some kind of supernatural beast from a Stephen King novel. Our number one terrifying animal mouth belongs to maybe the smallest creature on the list. These worms are found in the deep oceans, often near hydrothermal vents. They’re covered with scales and are known to be active predators.

Believe It or Not the Scariest Mouth in the World Belongs to a Species of Turtle
 
03:40
Read More: http://www.GistOnThis.com Here's one species of turtle you don't want to kiss. Believe me, the Leatherback Sea Turtle might look adorable and harmless, but lurking behind its cute face is a set of killer teeth, making its mouth one of the scariest in the world.. Hundreds of these jagged stalactite-like teeth called 'papillae' line the turtle's mouth and esophagus, all the way down to the gut. You just have to see it to believe it. The Leatherback is the third largest living reptile in the world, and also the largest turtle. It's actually a pretty docile creature, with a diet mainly consisting of jellyfish. In fact, the only reason it gets so huge is because it eats an astonishingly large number of the slow-moving jellies. Sometimes, the leatherback can consume about 73 percent of its own body weight in a single day, which is about 16,000 calories and three to seven times more than it needs to survive. Talk about binge eating! So why does this jelly-eating machine need a set of killer teeth, you ask? Well, the teeth gives it an evolutionary advantage. The sharp, pointy, backward-facing papillae actually prevent the slippery jelly from escaping by floating back out of the mouth. This means that the leatherback is able to eat all kinds of jellies -- right from the smallest swarms to the most massive ones like the Lion's Mane Jelly. This turtle species also has an unusually long esophagus that extends way past its stomach and all the way to the rear. Then it loops back up to connect to the stomach. So it's like a conveyor belt designed to catch, store and continuously process food. When a baby leatherback first makes an appearance in the world, it is just a tiny hatchling about 3-inches long. But thanks to all the water-rich jellies it consumes in its lifetime, it can grow to an average of four to six ft. long. Now, if you're thinking that the humungous turtle does nothing but eat and laze around all day, you're wrong. The leatherback turtle is a migratory species, travelling over 10,000 miles a year. It needs all the energy it can get to cover such large distances. And since jellyfish aren't exactly energy-boosting foods, the leatherback's best bet is to stuff its face with as many jellies as it can manage in one go. Unfortunately, despite its brilliantly designed digestive system, the leatherback is unable to differentiate between jellyfish and plastic trash floating in the water that gets stuck in its huge papillae. This is becoming a huge cause of concern as the fascinating creature is facing extinction. Serious efforts are made to preserve the species and I sure do hope they succeed.

Baby Leatherback sea turtle rescued from being under the sand for three days. The Leatherback Turtle is the largest turtle in the sea. It is endangered and watched over very closely by the Volusia County Turtle Patrol Each spring, sea turtles come ashore to lay eggs in a deep hole in the sand they dig with their hind flippers. On this day in mid July, three days after the turtles hatch, the officials from the Turtle Patrol, come by to dig up the nest to count the turtles which were successful and made it to the surface. Some, however do not make it, but occasionally a few hatch but do not quite make it to the surface. This is the story of "Reggie" who was brought to the surface, given cpr and set on its course to the ocean. Enjoy! Hope you "like" it.

Stranded 500-Pound Leatherback Sea Turtle Receiving Care After Rescue

Employees from the South Carolina Aquarium's Sea Turtle Hospital are administering aid and caring for a 500-pound leatherback sea turtle named Yawkey. On Saturday, the turtle was rescued by Good Samaritans after they spotted him stranded on a remote beach. Leartherback sea turtles are massive creatures and rescuing one can be quite an undertaking. Employees from the South Carolina Aquarium's Sea Turtle Hospital are administering aid and caring for a 500-pound leatherback sea turtle named Yawkey.  The turtle was spotted Saturday after being stranded on a remote beach.  The group of rescuers used a four-wheel drive truck to transport Yawkey away from the sands. Via Facebook, the South Carolina Aquarium noted, "Saturday's live rescue was the first in South Carolina's history, and Yawkey is the first of its kind to be treated at the Aquarium."  The turtle reportedly has low blood sugar so it is receiving both antibiotics and liquids. Aquarium employees are hoping he'll recover quickly, because this particular turtle species often doesn't thrive in captivity.  An aquarium sea turtle rescue program manager stated, "Sea turtles are tough. They are really tough animals. This turtle is in good enough condition that we can give it a good head start and release it. I do feel good about its prognosis."
