Caption: Green turtle (Chelonia mydas) swimming by a gorgonian (left) on a coral reef. Green sea turtles are found in warm tropical waters. They are herbivorous, eating algae and sea grasses, and can grow up to 1.5 metres in length. A gorgonian is a coral-like colony of polyps that form a tough structure (red) around themselves for protection and support. Photographed in the Andaman Sea off the coast of Thailand.
