Reference intervals of hematologic and biochemical blood profiles were obtained from 56 male and 58 female Mediterranean pond turtles (Mauremys leprosa) captured from the wild in different periods of their annual cycle. Mean (or median in nonnormal distributions) values of leukocyte differential were 53.8% and 58.5% heterophils, 35.3% and 32.6% eosinophils, 6.3% and 5.8% lymphocytes, 4.3% and 2% monocytes, and 0% and 0% basophils in males and females, respectively. Biochemical values did not… CONTINUE READING
