Their Structural Characteristics It has a big dark brown, yellow, green ish and hard shell. It has four flippers, 4 fins and a tail. Its legs are its flippers.
Information Size: they can grow up 5 feet (1.5 meters). They can live up to 80 years old. They can weigh up to 320 KG’s, 700 pounds. They are an endangered species, I think it will be very bad if there is none left in the world.
Food Its a Herbivore. The adult green sea turtles only eat plants and there favourite is sea greens. They eat mangrove that hangs over the water. The younger turtles will eat fish, jelly fish, crustaceans and algae. They are born as poor swimmers and float along the top and eat shrimp.
Habitat The adult turtles are found in shallow, coastal waters, bays and lagoons. Males never leave the water, but females swim to shore to lay their eggs. They are found in the pacific, Atlantic and Indian oceans.
Migration They migrate from feeding sites to nesting grounds, normally on sandy beaches. They mate every 2 to 4 years, and normally takes place in shallow water near the sand. To nest, females leave the sea and choose an area, most of the time on the same beach used as their mothers, to lay eggs.
