The Seven Sea Turtle Species of the World

Sunday, February 11, 2018 | By Cherie Glenn

Hawksbill Sea Turtle


One of the smallest of all the sea turtles, the hawksbill sea turtle possesses a beautiful shell and a mouth very similar in appearance to a bird beak. The pointy beak helps the turtle retrieve food out of the tiny cracks and holes in which it searches.

Hawkbills have been observed nesting in warmer climates that run along the equator and traveling through waters of the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian Oceans.
