Green Sea Turtle

SEA LIFE Grapevine Aquarium is the home of a Green Sea Turtle!

Adult Green Sea Turtles are completely herbivorous, apart from when they are young when they will occasionally eat small fish and jelly fish. As adults they usually feed on sea grasses and algae, which has the effect of turning their body fat green. Hence their name!

Unlike fish, turtles have to breathe air and are often seen in the wild coming to the surface so that they can take in a lungful of air. This, unfortunately, makes them vulnerable to boat strikes.

The Green Sea Turtle enjoys widespread distribution and may be found in subtropical and tropical seas of the Pacific, Atlantic and Indian Ocean.

Perhaps the most remarkable thing about the turtle is that the females will travel thousands of miles across the oceans to lay their eggs on the same beach where they were born.
