Fun Friday Foto-FFF, Green Sea Turtle Face of Oahu by Cheryl Elich-Krumpelt

I was lucky to come upon two of these wonderful creatures on a beach in Oahu, Hawai’i. The Green Sea Turtle, a member of the endangered species list, feeds on the algae that grows on the rocks near the shore. Occasionally, they will haul themselves up on the sandy beach to bask in the sun as they are cold blooded. They are very large reptiles and can live to eighty years old!
