Hawksbill turtle

When babies are born they are prey of anything that can pick them up and eat them, before they get safely to the sea.

The female will lay 5 clutches of about 100-140 eggs in a single breeding.

Sponges make up most of their diet

They use their sharp beak to get animals such as jellyfish, sea anemones, and corals out of reefs.
