Caption: Hawksbill sea turtle (Eretmochelys imbricata). Only female adult turtles come ashore, doing so to lay their eggs. This is the smallest of the marine turtles, rarely more than a metre in length. It lives in warm seas and oceans throughout the world, preferring shallow water. It eats mainly fish and crustaceans. This species is critically endangered. Photographed on Cousin Island, in the Seychelles, a group of islands north of Madagascar in the Indian Ocean.
