    Sea turtles are not aggressive.  Most are solitary animals, although some species do gather together when mating or offshore at nesting sites.  Divers sometimes can swim directly up to sea turtles and travel next to them for a bit.  In the United States, sea turtles are listed as endangered, and conservation efforts strive to keep them from drowning in fishing nets, one of the leading causes of death to a mature sea turtle.

    The only way sea turtles are dangerous is if people eat them. Since they live in the ocean, they absorb a lot of chemical pollution, like mercury, cadmium, and pesticides. People have actually died from eating them, though that is not common.
