A beautifully marked chelonian
in the family Emydidae, it is readily identified by the orange spots below the posterior end of the jaw and yellow plastron.
14) Mast cell disease has been documented in numerous small domestic mammals and occasional reptilian species, including dogs, (15-20) cats, (15,16,21,22) ferrets, (23-26) hedgehogs, (27) a snake, (28) and a chelonian
Peter Pritchard, founder of Florida's Chelonian
Research Institute and an internationally known authority on turtles, anecdotal reports suggest "possibly some residual individuals in Vietnamese waters.
Mrs Ovenstone said that because of the way they had been treated the tortoises were infected with Chelonian
herpes virus and would have to be kept separate from other tortoises.

Conservation, 6-10 July 1995, Gonfaron, France (Devaux B, ed).
Research Institute failed to find any signs of tortoise life on Pinta Island but did uncover the skeletons of 15 former male residents.
In this unusual collection of scientific essays, personal adventures, autobiographical vignettes and philosophical musings, Pritchard, director of the Chelonian
Research Institute and biology professor at Florida Atlantic U.
He has established a permanent field station for turtle conservation in northwestern Guyana and since 1998 has been the Director of the Chelonian

This veterinary reference from Chitty (Anton Vets, UK) and Raftery (Avian and Exotic Animal Clinic, UK) is devoted to the medical care of chelonian

Pritchard, president of the Chelonian
Research Institute in Florida, has an obvious affection for these rather burley beasts, and carefully documents their relationships to others of their ilk, their form and function, distribution, geographic variation, size, diet and feeding mechanisms, reproduction, movements, and natural history.
In fact, the Chelonian
Plan, which we filed in May, provided that we would supply, without a financing contingency, all of the cash necessary under our plan and we were willing to do so without burdening the debtor with any fees.
Progress in other fields of study will aid chelonian
ecologists as they seek causes of longitudinal structuring and refine strategies for conservation to suit life cycles of turtles.
