Named for their narrow, pointed beak, the hawksbill sea turtle also possesses a distinctive pattern of overlapping scales on their shells that form a serrated-look on the edges. Feeding mainly on sponges but occasionally on sea anemones and jellyfish, the hawksbill sea turtle is found mostly throughout the world's tropical oceans, predominantly in coral reefs.
For most of my life, I've lived near the Gulf of Mexico. At long last, I am learning to embrace the beauty that is the underwater realm.
