While we were on the Island we decided to go visit the sea turtle rescue. My mom had heard about the turtles and a lady at the hotel recommended we go see them. There is a recommended donation of $3 per person which I thought was quite a lot for all my little kids. We browsed the huge tanks and waited to see turtles coming up for a breath. It was interesting to see the various turtles and learn about why they were at the hospital. Toward the very end we took the steps down to the last tank and we found this big guy.
This turtle had a long tail that one of my kids pointed out. The lady that worked there explained that’s how you know it is a male. The female turtles have little short tails. When the kids had had enough fun the were able to throw the lettuce up into the tank and watch it get devoured. I thought the whole sea turtle center was worth it just for this turtle alone!
