MORE SEA TURTLES OF FLORIDA

Another endangered sea turtle of Florida is the Green sea turtle.  This  sea turtle is unique because their body fat is green and that is the reason they are called green sea turtles.

Green sea turtles also differ from other sea turtles because when they are young, they eat meat.  As adults they are the only species of sea turtles that eat sea grass and seaweed.  Green sea turtles lays around 2,600 nests every year on Florida's sandy beaches.
