Sea Turtle

  1. Even though I can clearly see the turtle, his colors and patterns do blend in with the surroundings quite well.

    Is this related to your previous post about the Turtle Cave?

  2. Here's a lucky sea turtle that survived being munched by a shark. If only she could talk! I'll bet she could tell quite a tale about the day the shark took a bite out of her. I took the photo at Sipadan Island, Malaysia.

    Happy Wordless Wednesday.

  6. It is amazing it survived. I think sea turtles are my favorite sea animal. I got quite sunburned in South Texas once watching a turtle surface in the same spot of the jetties every 6-8 minutes. I watched for hours with out realizing how much time had gone by.

  23. Thanks to all of our Wordless Wednesday friends for visiting and commenting.

    Will asked how big this turtle was. This was an average-sized adult -- the carapace (top shell) would have measured about two and a half feet in length (roughly 75 cm).
