Green turtle during nest building: the female crawls out onto the beach almost always at night – so high that its nest cannot be flooded even by the highest tide. She digs a digs a ditch about 40-50 cm deep into which she lays the eggs. She subsequently covers them carefully with sand, endeavours to leave behind as few indications of the nest as possible, and crawls back into the sea.

Distribution : All tropical and sub-tropical seas.
