Fun Facts about Sea Turtles everyone should know:
Sea Turtles think Jelly Fish are delicious and sadly plastic bags looks like Jelly Fish in the water this is why so many Sea Turtles die from ingesting plastic bags.
The Green Sea Turtles are the lawnmowers of our oceans, they have a more plant-based diet and love Sea Grasses, by keeping seagrass short, they prevent it from getting tall and harming other marine creatures.
Sea Turtles cannot retract their heads and flippers into their shells like other turtles due to their anatomy and shell shape, their anatomy makes them more agile when under the water but highly vulnerable when nesting and hatching.
Air and water temperatures decide the sex of the hatchlings (babies) the warmer it is the more females are born, the boys like it cooler. Sea Turtles have been living on Earth for about 110 million years, they used to hang out with the T-Rex and other dinosaurs.
Sea Turtles can hold their breath for up to 5 hours by slowing their heart beat to 1 beat every 9 minutes, this is how they conserve their oxygen. They can live up to around 100 years if we clean all plastic from our oceans (why we at Love Bobbie Boutique do not use plastic to wrap or package our soap products) and they can lay up to 100 eggs every year.
The coolest thing I love about Sea Turtles is they use the Earth's magnetic field to navigate, it's their compass.
