Hematological Values in Hermann`s Tortoise (Testudo hermanni) and Spur-thigted Tortoise (Testudo greaca) from Thrace Region (Turkey)
Murat Tosunoglu, C. Varol Tok and Cigdem Gul

Abstract:
Fifteen adult Testudo specimens (T. hermanni and T. graeca) of Thrace Region (Turkey) were examined for 10 hematological parameters; Red Blood Cell count (RBC), hematocrit value (PCV), Mean Corpuscular Volume (MCV), Hemoglobin Concentration (HbC), Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin (MCH), Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin Concentration (MCHC), blood cell (erythrocyte-leukocyte-thrombocyte) measurements and leukocyte formules. Of the investigation species, the widest and largest sized erythrocytes belong to T. hermanni, while the smallest sized erythrocytes is found T. graeca. Erythrocytes count and hemoglobin of T. graeca are found in more than T. hermanni. These hematological values were compared to those obtained from other Chelonia species.

I like Reptiles and Hematology. In this way this research is interesting for me to my classroom.
