baby sea turtles

Hatchling sea turtles use their egg-tooth to break out of their eggs, it takes them 3-7 days to reach the surface. Hatchlings usually wait until night to emerge, this gives them a higher chance of survival against predators. Once on the surface, the baby sea turtles expend a lot of energy getting themselves to the water's edge. This may not sound like much, but for the tiny turtle, it is a journey that is rife with deadly risks, such as birds, crabs, human disturbances, and more. Once the babies reach the water they use the current furiously swimming non-stop for about 24-48 hours continuously. By doing this they reach deeper waters which will make them less vulnerable to predators.
