Tortuga de Carey, Hawksbill sea turtle

Eretmochelys imbricata

Description:

I found this hawksbill sea turtle coming out from the ocean to the sandy shore in order to lay eggs.

Habitat:

While this turtle lives part of its life in the open ocean, it spends more time in shallow lagoons and coral reefs.

Notes:

The World Conservation Union classifies the hawksbill as critically endangered.
