Abstract

Hematologic data, morphology, and ultrastructure of peripheral blood cells of 5 juvenile olive ridley turtles (Lepidochelys olivacea) were evaluated. The following blood cells were identified: mature and immature erythrocytes, heterophils, large and small eosinophils, basophils, lymphocytes, monocytes, and thrombocytes. Unique blood cell features of olive ridley turtles that are useful for health evaluations within sea turtle care and conservation were identified in hematologic, morphological, and ultrastructural studies.
