In Sea Turtles Pool, the world succeeded in breeding of the third generation of hawksbill turtle under breeding for the first time.
Hawksbill turtle is distributed over tropical and subtropical coral reefs area of the world and is appointed to endangered species with Red List of IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources), Ministry of the Environment and Okinawa. In addition, breeding success of the third generation becomes the first example in the world because there are few breeding examples under the breeding.
We steal hawksbill turtle (we steal *) of the third generation who made birth (the summer of 2018) this time and mother and, in commemoration of breeding success, start (the second generation) display from Saturday, January 12!
In addition, in upbringing pool where we steal * which hatched in Sea Turtles Pool, and tatsu lives in, we steal born * in 2018 and do bait to tatsu and carry out experience in "it is for a limited time". You put together by all means, and carry foot. (please refer to the following for the details.)
We look forward to your coming in Sea Turtles Pool of a lot of new news at the beginning of new age afresh.
It was female hawksbill turtle which was born in Sea Turtles Pool in 1994 to have succeeded in breeding this time and confirmed sexual maturation from follicular growth state after the incubation in the 18th year. We confirm copulation in the beginning of May, 2018, and there is five times of laying eggs in total from June through August and we steal 53 * and make gafu and are growing up smoothly now afterwards (Mayor of direct back: 78cm, the weight: 55.5 kg).
It was said that hawksbill turtle was early and laid eggs in 15-22 years, but it followed that this breeding success (24 years) demonstrated it until now. Life of sea life is still often unknown, and there are a lot of data which are provided simply because it is breeding bottom. Through breeding and approach to breeding, we want to contribute to elucidation of life of sea turtle which is rare creature and preservation of kind in future.
