Turtles are majestic creatures. This one, spotted by tourists on the beach, is the largest marine turtle in the world.
This lute turtle emerged from water and rested in the sand, and then returned to the sea.
These turtles are the largest of all species, and it is rare to find them resting on the shore. Their particularity lies in their body in the shape of tears and a pair of large fins.
Thanks to this, they can easily navigate in waters and adapt to currents. Light turtle fins can reach 8.9 feet more than any other marine turtle, but it is not their only characteristic.
The most obvious is that they have no bone or shells, but the skin is very thick and looks like leather, which is at the origin of their name.
The lute turtle is generally dark gray or black with a few white spots. It is so beautiful! Watch this video of a lute turtle spotted on the beach.
