Bananas are ready to eat! I froze one last night to see if it turned black. It passed the test and looks like I will be able to freeze them. Last year they did not freeze well. Probably operator error. 😉 🍌 . . . #floridagardens #floridalandscapes #turtle #torts #orchids #tortoise #tortoiseofinstagram #cichlids #pondlife #floridalandscapes #redfoottortoise #redfootsofinstagram #florida #zone10b #tropicalfish #southflorida #growyourownfood #onlygoodvibes #urbangardening #urbangarden #reptiles #reptilesofinstagram #hibiscus #aquaticsnail #orchidcare #flowers #snails #siamesefightingfish #bettafish

So happy to see this! I went to my regular visited #petsupermarket on Weston Road near Griffin Road. This is how to properly set up a female beta tank! They can be raised with non aggressive community fish. They have also added plenty of aquatic plants to hide and feel protected. 🙌✅ . . . #floridagardens #floridalandscapes #turtle #torts #orchids #tortoise #tortoiseofinstagram #cichlids #pondlife #floridalandscapes #redfoottortoise #redfootsofinstagram #florida #zone10b #tropicalfish #southflorida #growyourownfood #onlygoodvibes #urbangardening #urbangarden #reptiles #reptilesofinstagram #hibiscus #aquaticsnail #orchidcare #flowers #snails #siamesefightingfish #bettafish

“Turtle” is the umbrella term for all 200 species of the testudine group, which includes turtles, tortoises, and terrapins. All turtles have two distinct features: A shell to which their ribs and vertebrae are fused, and a pelvic girdle that sits inside their rib cage. This “compressed anatomical structure,” is what gives turtles their signature lumbering walk. Turtles can be aquatic, semi-aquatic, or mostly terrestrial. Tortoises are turtles that live on land and aren't equipped for water. One easy way to tell a tortoise from a turtle is to look at its feet, which are "designed for trucking around on land". Only sea turtles have true flippers. Most turtles have streamlined shells but there are some exceptions. Box turtles, for example, have a domed shell, as do Sonoran mud turtles and all tortoises. All turtles also have a gular scute, an extension of the lower shell that sticks out under the chin. Gular scutes are more pronounced in males, who use them as weapons to flip an opponent over in a fight. For some extra complication, there are two suborders of turtles whose classifications are based entirely on how they move their necks. Cryptodira, which includes the desert mud turtle, can pull their heads straight back inside their shells, but Pleurodira, or side-necked turtles, like South America’s Mata Mata, cannot. They turn their heads to the side and hide them under the rim of their shells for protection. And finally, there’s the terrapin, an Algonquian word for turtle, more or less aquatic hard-shelled turtles. Terrapins, like the diamondback terrapin, which inhabits coastal marshes from New England to Texas, prefer to make their homes in brackish water. Pictures 📷: 1.
