Abstract

The aim of this research was to gain the profile of blood gasses of green turtle (Chelonia mydas) hatch. Blood gas of the green turtle was analysed after exposuring them at 28 °C and 50% of humidity for 24 hours in a pvc tube and at 34 °C under sunlight exposured with 47% of humidity for 30 minutes. The result showed the different values of blood gas contents. This result showed indication of metabolism activities and poikilothermic adaptation of green turtle hatch. This information can be used to support for turtle hatchery in Indonesia.
