The Green Sea Turtle

The most gracious reptile in the waters

The history of the Green Sea Turtle

Are green sea turtles land or water creatures? Well there actually both, they started out about on land but over 150 years they have slowly moved to the waters. The green sea turtle was one of the few creatures that have seen dinosaurs evolve, and become extinct. Turtles were first thought to have appeared during the triassic period about 208-245 million years ago.
