Turtles as Pets: Important Issues
Veterinary & Aquatic Services Department, Drs. Foster & Smith, Inc.
Getting a pet is always a very important decision and one that should be made only when you are aware of what having this pet will entail. What type of turtle, sources of turtles, and estimates of the time and money it will take to properly care for the turtle are all important considerations. But before you go out and buy a turtle, you need to ask yourself some very important questions.

Bull Shark (Carcharhinus leucas)
Order: Carcharhiniformes Family: Carcharhinidae
The bull shark gets its name from its snout, which is wider than it is long. It is possibly more dangerous to humans than the great white shark because it lives in shallow, murky water in areas where people swim. The real shark attacks on which the movie and book Jaws were based were done by a bull shark.

Panda Bear (Ailuropoda melanoleuca)
Order: Carnivora, Family: Ursidae
The giant panda has thick black fur on its ears, eyes, muzzle, legs and shoulders. The rest of it is white. The panda's striking coloring probably serves to help it blend in to both snowy and rocky environments. Pandas measure 2 to 3 feet tall and 4 to 6 feet long. Males weigh about 250 pounds, and females average 220. The panda has extremely strong jaw muscles and large teeth, which allow it crush bamboo, its main food. The panda has strong front legs, which it uses to climb trees. Its rear legs are weaker.

The common English name, fiddler crab, comes from the manner in which male crabs feed; male crabs move their small claw from the ground to their mouth, causing them to resemble someone sweeping a bow (the small claw) across a fiddle (the large claw). The male's large claw measures about 1 to 2 inches long, and is often as large and heavy as the rest of the crab's body. It also often contrasts in color with the rest of the crab'...

Beluga Whale (Delphinapterus leucas)
Order: Cetacea, Family: Monodontidae
Arctic Ocean: An exclusively northern hemisphere species, the beluga range is primarily the Arctic ocean and some adjoining seas. Belugas are a white-colored whale with a fusiform body shape and a large melon on the head. This melon is thought by some to focus echolocation tones, although this is in question. The melon can also be used as an indicator of health (poorly nourished belugas have low flat melons while well fed individuals have round melons) and of emotional state agressive individuals raise their melons forward. The tail is strongly forked. There are no dorsal fins. Thirty-eight...

Bull Shark (Carcharhinus leucas)
Order: Carcharhiniformes, Family: Carcharhinidae
The bull Shark inhabits coastal waters in tropical and subtropical seas worldwide. The bull shark can be recognized by its unique body shape, which is much wider in comparison to its length than other sharks, and its snout, which is wider than it is long. These features give the bull shark an almost stout appearance.
