Sea turtles are a group of reptiles that inhabit the world's oceans. The green sea turtle is one of them, and it can be found in the warm waters near Australia, Indonesia, New Guinea, Malaysia and Papua New Guinea. In many cultures they are considered to be creatures of good luck because they appear on beaches before storms or tsunamis strike. They also represent longevity as their average lifespan is about 100 years!
Green Sea turtles can grow up to 2 meters long. They feed on algae and seagrass beds which helps keep coral reefs healthy. When you see a green sea turtle it may look like they are just swimming along but they actually use their flippers as paddles when needed.
