Green turtle

Chelonia mydas

Description:

Green sea turtles, Chelonia mydas (Linnaeus, 1758), are Chelonians - which means they have four legs and a tough shell made of two parts which join at the sides. The green sea turtle's legs are shaped like flippers. Their heads are lizard-like, with a hooked beak and toothless jaw. Adult green sea turtles may grow up to 99 external cm long and weigh 180 external kg.
