Internet Turtle Resources

We've tried here to make as complete a listing as possible for internet information on the clade Chelonia. If you have a link you'd like to add, please contact the author of this page. As we have not yet reached the "paperless society" stage, there are also books and other literature sources that should not be overlooked; you can find a list of these on our Chelonia Literature Sources page.

Turtles are still somewhat slow getting onto the web, but there are a few excellent pages with abundant information on our shelly reptilian friends. Try the first few links first; these are the most comprehensive pages and would be a good starting point. Enjoy!
