Ernie - The Green Sea Turtle (Chelonia mydas)

Some interesting facts...Turtles can live for over 150 years! But despite being built to last, these ancient animals are under threat from human activity.

When Green Sea Turtles are born, they are only 5cm (2 inches) long. But they grow up to 1.5 metres (5 ft) in length and can weigh over 300kgs (approx. 50 stone), making them the largest of the hardshell sea turtles.
