These shots of a Green Sea Turtle were taken at Low Isles off the coast of Port Douglas, Australia. They are one of the few species still in existence that would have seen the evolution and extinction of the dinosaurs. Green Sea Turtles are herbivores and breathe air. Adult Green Sea Turtles live most of their lives in the sea with females returning to land to lay their eggs. When sleeping or resting Adult Green Sea Turtles can be underwater for more than 2 hours without breathing.
