Sea turtles are fascinating creatures! We have lots of sea turtle nests here on our beach that are just about ready to hatch! I’m very excited and check our nests everyday to look for signs of hatchlings.
There are seven types of sea turtles still living….
They are The Green sea turtle, Hawksbill, Leatherback, Flatback, Loggerhead, Kemp Ridley and Olive Ridley. Here on the west cost of Florida we normally have Loggerhead sea turtles but sometimes we have Kemp Ridley sea turtles hatch!!!
Sea turtles can live from 50 to 80 years old.
Sea turtles lay around 100 eggs in a nest and only one out of 1,000 makes it to be a adult!
Here is a picture of baby sea turtles hatching!!!
