The discovery of the remains of a turtle in the ruins of Pompeii – 06/25/2022 – Science

Two archaeologists discovered in Pompeii RuinsItaly, remains of an egg-bearing turtle that died before the eruption of the volcano Vesuvius that destroyed the ancient city in 79 AD

The 14 cm long creeper brought new evidence about the last years of the city, which was in the process of reconstruction after the earthquake in AD 62.

Pregnant tortoise of the family Testudo Hermannni appears to have taken refuge in a dilapidated warehouse to lay her eggs, but is dead.

The archaeological site stated in a statement on Friday (24th) that “the people responsible for renovating the site did not discover the intrusion of the animal and its remains were covered.”

The facilities general manager, Gabriel Zustregel, said that during the rebuilding of the city, “some spaces were used so little that wild animals could move in and in and look for a place to lay eggs.”

The tortoise was found near the so-called Stabian Hot Springs, and it swelled up after the earthquake.

The vesicle eruption, nearly 2,000 years ago, the city was left buried. These deposits almost made it possible to preserve many buildings, as well as the bodies of victims. Pompeii, in southern Italy, is the second tourist destination in the country, after the Colosseum in Rome.
