MEET THE LOCALS THE GREEN TURTLE
The only herbivore amongst her species, the Green Turtle ( Chelonia mydas; also known as the Green Sea Turtle) is so named for the colour of her cartilage and fat – not her shell. This species moves gracefully in the water despite growing up to 180kgs and a length of 120cms. With a large pair of paddle-like flippers she easily navigates the seagrass that she feeds on, only biting off the blade, to keep the seagrass healthy and plentiful; a beautiful symbiotic relationship that enables her to live up to 80 years in the wild.
