Abstract

The metabolic rates (oxygen consumption) and corresponding activity were studied in young turtle of the species Lepidochelys olivacea (Echscholtz). Experiments were also conducted to study the influence of ambient oxygen on activity and oxygen consumption. The turtles of the size group between 67 and 95 mm in carapace length (curved) were acclimated and tested at an average temperature of30°C and 30.37%, salinity.
