In my head:
What I know about turtles Turtles have shells that cover their backs and shells that cover their stomachs. The shells are made from bony plates that get bigger

When they are asleep, they can stary underwater for hours. Male turtles wait just off the nesting beaches. They mate with the females. Then the females come ashore to lay eggs. Coming ashore is very risky for sea turtles - they can easily overheart and die. So they only nest at night or in cool weather. Then they get back to the sea as soon as possible Females stay close to their nesting beach for several months. In that time they usually make at least 4 nests, and sometimes as many as 10. Turtle eggs in warm sand can be ready to hatch in 6 weeks. If the sand is cool, they can take 3 weeks longer.
