Large sea turtle with smooth carapace. Named for the color of its fat, rather than visual color. Populations have been dramatically reduced forcing it to be considered endangered.
Reef in Nassau, Bahamas
While snorkeling in the Bahamas, these green sea turtles would come in and feed on the plant life. At one time, I had six of these beauties swimming around me! Such a peaceful moment.
