Sea Turtles

There are seven types of different species:

  1. The green sea turtle
  2. The Loggerhead
  3. Kemp’s Ridley
  4. Olive Ridley
  5. Hawks bill
  6. Flat back
  7. Leather Back

Sea turtles can be found in any ocean, except the polar regions. During the first 3-5 years of its life, the sea turtle spends most of its time in the open ocean, floating on seaweed mats. Once the sea turtle reaches adult hood it moves closer to the shore.

Sea turtles have large shells, which helps protect them from predators, such as sharks. Their large body sizes also helps them move across large distances, as sea turtles can migrate over large distances over the ocean.

A female sea turtle lays eggs on land, she digs a small hole and puts between 50-350 eggs!! The mother then recovers the hole to protect the eggs and returns to the sea. However, not many of these eggs do not make it to the ocean. The holes where the eggs are laid are raided by animals, such as foxes. Once in the water, they are susceptible to sea birds and large fish and even other turtles.

The International Union of Conservative of Nature classifies the sea turtle as either endangered or critically endangered. There are some species where we are lacking date and do not know much about them.
