Turtle Tracks

Sea Turtle HatchlingsFast Facts Sea Turtle Diet:

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.

A 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.
