Green Sea Turtles

For green sea turtles, mating occurs every 2-4 years. The male turtle will court the female before taking it to shallow waters to mate.

Green Sea Turtles

Once the eggs hatch, the little hatchlings must make the journey from the beach out into the sea. The hatchlings will usually stay in unanchored seaweed offshore for 3-5 years where they find food and shelter from predators.

Offspring

The female turtle can carry up to 200 eggs while pregnant.The female delivers the eggs into a pit she digs on the beach. She will cover up the eggs with sand and return back to sea, leaving the eggs to hatch on their own in 2 months.
