The Green Sea Turtle
Transcript of The Green Sea Turtle
The "green" turtle.
It's not named after it's shell,the shell being olive or brown depending on it's habitat.It is named after the greenish color of it's skin. Unlike most other sea turtles the green turtle as an adult is a herbivore and eats sea grasses and algae. But as juveniles they also eat invertabrates like crabs, and jellyfish. They can weigh up to 700 pounds! They can't retract their head into their shell. The green turtle have long paddle like fins, that are great for swimming but not so good for land activities. Green turtles migrate too.They go on long journeys from feeding sites to nesting grounds. Once they have finished their long journey a female green turtle digs a hole in the sand with her long fins and lays 100 to 200 eggs. The female green turtle leaves the eggs buried and goes back into the ocean. but after the eggs hatch they have to make a treacherous waddle back to the sea, along the way watching out for predators like crabs and seagulls. On a not so good note, green turtles are an endangered species, which has been caused by humans killing them for their meat and eggs. They are also killed by boat propeller accidents. Fishnet caused drownings And the destruction of the green turtle's nesting grounds by human enroachment. So now that you've seen this presentation, what are you going to do with your knowledge?
