World’s largest sea turtle emerges from the sea!
This is the first time we can see this enormous sea turtle that has emerged from the water onto the beach. It is a gigantic leatherback turtle, and it seems to have come out of the water to rest upon the sand.
Leatherbacks are the biggest turtle species in the world. They are, specially designed to cope with the colder seas. They can dive deep to have their favorite jellyfish snack. But unlike most others, leatherbacks don’t have a hard shell. Instead, they have thick leathery skin as describes in its name.
They can grow up to 9 feet taller than any other sea turtle. They prefer to travel along with the world alone and only meet other turtles when breeding. Like other turtles, they lay their eggs on a beach and let the babies make their way to the sea.
