Abstract

A comprehensive health assessment was conducted in May 1997 on free-living green sea turtles (Chelonia mydas) occurring off the coast of Ras Al-Khaima, United Arab Emirates. As an integral part of this assessment, blood samples were obtained from a total of 72 clinically normal individuals, including 25 adult females, 20 adult males, 14 subadults and 13 juvenile turtles to establish normal haematology reference values for free-living green sea turtles.
