Meet the majestic world’s largest leatherback sea turtle emerges from the sea

This turtle spotted by tourists by the sea is the largest ocean turtle on the planet.

This turtle spotted by tourists by the sea is the largest ocean turtle on the planet.

The leatherback turtle was seen emerging from the sea in an unknown location, resting in the sand and then turning back just to disappear into the waves.

The front flippers of leatherback turtles can reach 8.9 feet, which is a lot compared to all other turtles, but that’s not their only distinct feature. The most obvious is that they don’t have a bony shell, but they have thick skin.

Leatherback turtles are usually dark grey or black with a few white spots. To see this amazing specimen for yourself, watch the video of the one spotted on the beach.
