Caption

Olive ridley turtle (Lepidochelys olivacea) over a reef. This turtle is found in tropical waters in various parts of the Pacific, Atlantic and Indian oceans. The carapace (shell) of the adults can be up to 70 centimetres in length. It will forage in surface waters off shore, and will also dive 150 metres deep to reach bottom dwelling crustaceans. It is omnivorous, eating shrimp, jellyfish, crabs, snails, fish, algae and sea grasses. This turtle is famed for its nesting habits, forming enormous groups (arribadas) of nesting females laying their eggs. Olive ridley turtles are endangered by human pollution and fishing. Photographed in the Red Sea.
