A day at the beach

Every day is a day at the beach for one of my favorite reptiles: the Green Sea Turtle (at least for this one at Sea World). These magnificent marine reptiles can be found in the tropical/ sub tropical areas of the world in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. They feed primarily on various species of sea grasses in shallow lagoons. Just like other sea turtles, Green Sea Turtles migrate long distances between their feeding grounds and where they were hatched.

Like all the sea turtles, Green Sea TurtlesĀ are facing serious threats out in the wild from pollution, harvesting for their shells, meat, and eggs, and from habitat loss. They are considered endangered and are protected throughout their range.
