Green Sea turtles
Introduction
Hello! I’m going to be talking about Green Sea Turtles. I chose this topic because I wanted to learn more about green sea turtles, but what is a green sea turtles life really like?
Green Sea turtles have a large shaped shell that is beige, brown or black. The average shell length is 78-112 cm. A turtle's shell has many different colour patterns that will change over time. It has large flippers. It has a beaked shape head and a short neck. An adult Green Sea Turtle grows to an average of 5 feet and weighs about 68-190kg.
The Green Sea Turtle's skin is green and that is why it is called the Green Sea Turtle. Male turtles are slightly larger than females and have a longer tail. Baby sea turtles weigh about an ounce and their shell is 2 inches in length. Baby Sea turtles are dark brown or black with white flippers and a white belly. Green Sea Turtles are one of the largest sea turtles in the world
Habitat
The Green Sea Turtles live in tropical seas around the world. These turtles are very rarely seen in the open ocean. You would most likely see these turtles in the Hawaiian Islands, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands and the east coast of Florida. You could also see them in the Atlantic Ocean, the Caribbean Sea, a part of the Mediterranean, and in warm waters of the Indian and Pacific Oceans.
Green Sea Turtles use their sharp jaw to eat their food. They are herbivores, which mean they eat plants like kelp and algae. Depending on their age, they may also eat different things like plankton
Diet
Humans and larger sharks are the only predators for adult green sea turtles. Baby turtles have more predators like crabs and birds. Their eggs are wanted by red foxes and golden jackals. The green sea turtles are endangered because the turtles and their eggs are being hunted for food. Also, when the eggs hatch the babies get killed by predators or by drying out. The turtles also, by accident, get killed in nets.
