Comments

British Indian Ocean Territory Turtles:



The Olive Ridley gets its name from the greenish colour of their skin and shell (or carapace). It is one of the smallest of the sea turtles, weighing up to 100 pounds and reaching only about 2 feet in shell length. The Olive Ridley Turtle is considered one of the most abundant of the sea turtles, yet globally they have declined by more than 30% from historic records.
