Endangered Marine Reptiles

By

Have you ever seen a live sea turtle? These marine reptiles are graceful underwater, and usually ungainly on land.

There are seven recognized species of sea turtles, six of which (the hawksbill, green, loggerhead, Kemp's ridley, olive ridley, and flatback turtles) are in the Family Cheloniidae, with only one (the leatherback) in the family Dermochelyidae.

Here you can see beautiful images of sea turtles, and learn facts about several sea turtle species.
