Caption

Leatherback turtle (Dermochelys coriacea) swimming with attached remora fish. This turtle inhabits warm seas, only coming to land to lay eggs. It is the largest of the living turtles, reaching over 2 metres in length. Remora fish attach to a turtle or other larger fish with a sucker, which is a modified dorsal fin. They feed on scraps discarded by its host, but does not harm its host in any way. Photographed off Juno Beach, Florida, USA.
