Fun In The Sun
Photograph - Digital Photo
A giant snapping turtle enjoys a warm day in the sun. Turtles bask or lay in the sun because they are reptiles and cannot make their own heat. The sun’s warmth helps raise their body temperatures up to between 16° C and 35° C so they can better digest their food. Also, their muscles work better if they are warm.
