The Back Story:

Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle

Hawaiian green sea turtles, or honu, are native to Hawaii. They are the largest hard-shelled sea turtle in the world, reaching lengths of four feet and weights over 300 pounds. Out of the seven types of sea turtle, the Hawaiian green sea turtles are the most common turtle in Hawaii.

The color of their upper shell ranges from brown with yellow and light brown streaks to black, The color of their plastron (bottom shell) is a light yellow. As adults, Honu mainly eat algae and sea grasses, which turn their fat layer green, giving them their common name. In order to navigate, it is believed that they are born with a map and have a magnetic preference in their bodies.
