The slower the heartbeat the longer you live?
I think it is about rate of metabolism. Which subsequently affects the rate at which everything in the body works. Small mammals lose a lot of heat so must have a fast metabolism to compensate (faster rate of reactions + work occurring in cells), as a result the heart must work faster to supply necessary oxygen for respiration to produce ATP, a molecule which is "broken down" to release energy to do work. Larger mammals have slower metabolisms such as elephants, humans etc. But I am sure there are a multitude of other factors, turtles and tortoises are reptilian so might have a slightly different architecture, I don't know.
I imagine turtles and tortoises do have slow rates of metabolism though since they are a tad more sedentary than the hyperactive rabbit.
People over here like to eat sea turtles and there eggs (i only tried it once and i think it tastes bad) and it gives lots of energy and helps get you stronger, me? i like shark meat more.
Ps. if you get ought with turtle meat or eggs you are screwed 1400$ to 3000$ fine and some years in the slammer lol.
that's a tortuous but okay
It's a Tortoise
