Resumo


The species Chelonoidis carbonaria was first described by Spix in 1824, popularly known as jabuti-piranga or tortoise-legged-red, it is a terrestrial animal found in various regions of South America. The objective of measuring the variations in blood serum enzyme constituents in Chelonoidis carbonaria captive using analytical methods routinely used. The animals are part of the breeding Study and Research Laboratory in wild animals UFU were subjected to manual restraint for blood collection, where they were collected, approximately 4 ml of venous blood of each animal in 5 mL disposable syringe with hypodermic needle disposable 27G after previous antisepsis site punctured with 70% alcohol. Constituents Enzymatic Serum were analyzed: Alanine aminotransferase; Aspartate aminotransferase; Total creatine kinase; Creatine kinase MB; Alkaline phosphatase (ALP); Gamma glutamyl transferase (GGT); Lactate dehydrogenase (LDH). The values for assessing blood serum enzyme constituents in Chelonoidis carbonaria, generally show no significant differences in values observed in other species of Testudines.
