Endemic to oceans all around the world, the loggerhead sea turtle is the world’s largest hard shelled turtle. On average, they weigh around 300 pounds and are 3 feet long. However, specimens that weigh over 1,000 pounds and measure over 9 feet long have been recorded.
While many sea turtle species primarily eat vegetation, loggerheads are omnivorous and will eat jellyfish, crabs, and fish alongside seaweed and other ocean plants. While they are the most populated marine turtle species in North American waters, their population is declining due to pollution, shrimp trawling, deep ocean nets, and a general loss of their natural habitat. The loggerhead is currently designated as vulnerable by the IUCN.

Because of their enormous size, leatherback sea turtles have exceedingly few natural predators when they mature, and are mostly vulnerable during the early stages of their lives. However, they are ultimately considered vulnerable due to human activities, the most detrimental of which is pollution. We’d love for you to take home this beautiful creature, but before you do make sure you have lots of room – they’re huge!
