Caption

Green turtle. View of a green turtle (Chelonia mydas) in a rock pool. The green turtle is a large aquatic reptile which lives in warm seas throughout the world. It stays close to coasts for most of its life, eating the plants which are abundant there. It may reach a length of over 150 centimetres. Despite their entirely aquatic existence, the females still return to beaches to lay their eggs, almost always the beach where they themselves were born. Photographed in the Galapagos Islands, a volcanic archipelago some 1000 kilometres west of South America, which belong to Ecuador.
