Why is this species endangered?
Physical and Behavioral Adaptations
Leatherback turtles are great swimmers and can dive over 1,000 meters deep. This behavior lets the turtles swim freely, so we should make the tank deep for them. Female leatherback turtles go ashore so they can lay their eggs. They also cover their eggs in the sand, so we need to incorporate a beach-like area for them to do all of that.
Impact of Introduction
The leatherback turtle can be found in the Atlantic, Indian, and Pacific Oceans. They also live in the Mediterranean Sea.
