Caption: Adult male hawksbill turtle (Eretmochelys imbricata) descending from the sunlit surface to the viewer. Turtles need to breath air as they have lungs, but they can hold their breath for over an hour when resting. An adult male hawksbill can grow to over a metre in length, with typical weight of around 80 kilograms. Filmed in Palau.
