Where are they located?
Named after the green color of the fat found beneath its shell, the green sea turtle spends much of its 80-year lifespan plying the tropical and subtropical waters of the world’s oceans. Unlike other sea turtles, green sea turtles are mostly herbivores, feeding off seagrass that grows in shallow areas. The waters and beaches of Hawaii are the turtle’s most important habitat in the US, but minor nesting sites can also be found along the coast of Florida.
Eggs and Gender
The green sea turtle gets its name not from the color of its shell but from the greenish shade of its fat.
A sharp beak helps the turtles rip through vegetation. Their shells, which are lighter and more dynamic than other turtles, allow them to swim easily through the water, while flippers enable them to swim long distances.
Male sea turtles spend their entire lives at sea, but females return to the same beaches they were born on, once every two years give or take to lay their eggs.
