Streamlined and equipped with flippers, sea turtles seem uniquely adapted for water, yet remain firmly attached to land, where the females lay their eggs each year. They sport the many colors of the rainbow, range in weight from 100 to 1,300 pounds, and figure in the mythology and folklore of cultures around the world. And still, they currently risk extinction. The most comprehensive overview of sea turtles to date, this book portrays each of the seven species in detail, offering information on appearance, distribution, movements, life history, reproduction, diet, unique traits, and conservation.
