Meet The Sea Turtle
Sea Turtles can be found in all oceans except for the polar regions. Sea turtles are generally found in the waters over continental shelves. There are seven different types of sea turtles. The flatback sea turtle is found solely on the northern coast of Australia. The Kemp's Ridley sea turtle is found solely in the Gulf of Mexico and along the East Coast of the United States.

Sea Turtles have a more fusiform body plan than other freshwater turtles. This tapering at both ends reduces volume and means that sea turtles can't retract their head and limbs into their shells for protection.

Sea Turtles play key roles in two habitat types: oceans and beaches/dunes. In the oceans, sea turtles, especially green sea turtles, are among the very few creatures that eat sea grass. Sea grass needs to be constantly cut short to help it grow across the sea floor. Sea turtle grazing helps maintain the health of the sea grass beds. Sea grass beds provide breeding and developmental grounds for numerous marine animals. Without them, many marine species humans harvest would be lost, as would the lower levels of the food chain. The reactions could result in many more marine species eventually becoming endangered or extinct.

Sea Turtle Facts
A foraging sea turtle may typically spend 5–40 minutes underwater while a sleeping sea turtle can remain underwater for 4–7 hours.

Sea turtle eggs gender depends on sand temperature while the egg is incubating.

Sea turtles have a magnetic map and compass sense, enabling them to determine and maintain a specific orientation and know exactly where they are going during migration.
