Description: Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle - Kona, Hawaii
Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles love to haul out on the Kona Coast. Basking is rare among marine turtles, and has been observed in only a few populations in the Pacific. It is thought that they do this for thermoregulation, resting, and perhaps for protection from tiger sharks.
