Caption: Hawksbill turtle (Eretmochelys imbricata) swimming over a reef with a school of rabbitfish. The hawksbill is one of the smaller marine turtles, rarely reaching a metre in length. It is found throughout the world in tropical and subtropical waters, preferring shallow coastal regions. It feeds primarily on plants, but will occasionally eat corals, sponges and carrion. Like all reptiles it breathes air, and females come to land to lay their eggs. Apart from this, though, it is entirely aquatic. Photographed in Malaysia.
