Green Sea Turtle

Chelonia mydas aggazizi


Female green sea turtle ~2½ feet long swimming above reef; visible in the image are possible epibiotic colonizations/attachments indicated by the white encrustations on the left front flipper and on the posterior of the carapace


Coral reef in near shore tropical waters.


Spotted about 100 yards offshore of Po'ohuna Point (near Makua Beach) on Leeward Oahu in about 35 feet of water; day and month of spotting are notional: only 1994 is known to be correct. Original medium was photoprint, taken with Nikonos V using flash; print subsequently scanned and image saved as digital file.
