[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Captured this guy at Sea World Orlando. I have been lucky enough to see them laying eggs in the wild. They will lay about 150 eggs in a hole the prepare above the high tide mark. Depending on the temperature of the sand all the hatchlings will be male or female.

From the web

Green sea turtles average about 200-350 pounds, with a carapace length of at least 2 1/2 feet long. Adults can grow to 4 feet and weigh up to 400 pounds.
