- Caretta sea Turtles in Cirali / Turkey
- Date Added: Jun 4, 2008
The Loggerhead Sea Turtle (Caretta caretta) is a sea turtle and the only member of the genus Caretta. The genus name "Caretta" is a latinization of the French "caret", meaning turtle, tortoise, or sea turtle. A loggerhead sea turtle reportedly grows up to 800 lbs (364 kg) and 3.5 feet long. Their shell color is a reddish brown color, and the color of their skin is brown yellow. In the Turkey, Loggerheads mate from late March to early June. The female nesting season is at its peak in June and July, but this depends on the nesting beach. The clutch may vary from 100 to 126 eggs. Each egg is roughly the size and shape of a golf ball. The average interval between nesting seasons is two to three years.
