About The Creature!

There are seven species of Sea Turtles, six of which are endangered by humans due to accidental entanglement in fishing gear, loss of habitat, being hunted, and pollution. It is not known exactly how long sea turtles live in the wild, but scientists think their life span may be as long as a century. Common meals for them include jellyfish, seaweed, crabs, shrimp, sponges, snails, algae, and mollusks.
