Kemp's Ridley Baby Turtles

Before most baby turtles reach sea they get eaten by birds, and only about 20% of the turtles make it to sea. In my mind I think that when turtles are heading to sea its a race and the ones who make it to the ocean wins, but the ones who don't are bird food. But its not their fault, its not are fault, its just the way the food chain works. You're probably thinking why doesn't the mother lay the eggs in the shallow water, Because it would be more dangerous if the female turtle lays her eggs in water, and if she did the turtles could die right after hatching because they would drown. That is why the female turtle lays her eggs in the dry moist sand and bursaries them. The female turtle bursaries the eggs to keep them warm, and predators from getting to them and eating the eggs.
The reason I choose to do the Kemp's Ridley sea turtle is because they are my favorite spices of turtles. Their my favorite turtle because the were and still are on the brink of extinction, but with are help their numbers have grown. They are pretty amazing creatures don't you think.
