Consider this magnificent sight: a massive leatherback turtle emerges from the water to rest on a sandy beach.
Leatherback turtles are the largest of these animals, and they lack a hard shell, which distinguishes them from their brother species.
Their backs are coated with thick skin, and it is from this that the species gets its name. These colossi wander alone and only converse with other species when it’s time to breed.
They, like all other turtles, deposit their eggs on the sand, and their pups hatch and swim to the sea on their own.
Because these turtles can survive cold temperatures, they will dive deep to collect jellyfish and eat them.
These turtles’ huge fins can exceed three meters in length, which is much longer than that of ordinary leatherback turtles.
It is truly amazing to come across these creatures that demonstrate the diversity of our natural world, in which you can see the wide range of sizes, types, and shapes of not only different species, but even one, and we, as humans, should try to treat it with more care.
