World’s Biggest Sea Turtle Surfaces From The Sea And It Is Mesmerizing
This particular sea turtle spotted by tourists on a beach is the world’s largest and a truly majestic creature. It was a Leatherback Turtle, which emerged from the sea at an unknown location, rested on the sand, and eventually disappeared back into the waves. These turtles are known for being the biggest of all sea turtles, and it’s quite rare to spot them resting on the shore. Their unique tear-shaped body and large front flippers allow them to navigate the waters with ease and adapt to various currents. The front flippers of the Leatherback turtle can grow up to 8.9 ft, which is much larger than any other turtles.
However, their most distinctive feature is their lack of a bony carapace. Instead, they have thick skin that resembles leather, hence their name. Leatherback turtles typically have a dark grey or black color with a few white spots. To witness this amazing specimen for yourself, watch the video of the Leatherback Turtle spotted on the beach.
