Underway At Sea

A Loggerhead Turtle cruising the South Padre National Seashore surf line. It's hard to really notice the true size of this guy by this photo.....he's roughly 200-250lbs and rougly 40-50 years in age. Loggerhead sea turtles live a long time and they sexually mature at 20-30 years of age. Pretty amazing animals and it's an absolute joy to witness them living wild and free along the Gulf of Mexico shoreline.
