Sea Turtle Reproduction


Eggs are laid on land. The female digs a pit in the sand using her hind flippers, and deposits up to 200 eggs. Incubation period is 45-70 days. The newly hatched turtles will try to find their way to the water. Many of them are eaten by birds or other predators. Few survive to adulthood.
