Sea Turtle Species
Sea Turtle Nesting Season
turtles nest in Florida from late April to September. An average
clutch consists of about 100 eggs. The eggs incubate
for about 60 days before producing two-inch hatchlings that weigh only
3/5 of an ounce.
Ironically, there are also seemingly excellent nesting beaches in those regions. Why the loggerheads commute to the United States is anyone's guess.
the past, when turtles were more abundant in the Caribbean,
the beaches there may have been fully utilized by greens and hawksbills.
