If turtles dies because of the oil spill will they sink or will they float?

    Sea turtles are known to both sink and float when they die. Approximately 20-30% of dead sea turtles will wash up on shores, which is known as a stranding. The remaining 70-80% that aren’t found are either eaten, float out to sea, sink to the bottom, or wash up on shores in remote regions. By June 6th of this year, 33 dead or injured sea turtles stranded, or washed up on shores from the Gulf. It was expected that many others sank to the bottom and were not counted in this tally.
