Fast Facts: Sea Turtles & the Wrack
Sea Turtles are toothless animals; instead, they use powerful beak-like jaws to crush, bite and tear food.
A Sea Turtle's jaw is specific to the variety of food it eats.
Sea Turtle's eat anything when young, but their diet becomes specific when they reach adulthood.
Please report any marine animals in distress to the Sheriff's Dispatch 904.824.8304.
