The Loggerhead Sea Turtle are the largest hard-shelled turtles of their species with huge heads and reddish-brown shells.
Although they have the highest underwater population of marine turtles, they have been on the endangered species list since the late 1970s. The Loggerheads usually live for 50 years or more and can cover 15 miles per hour when swimming in the water. They eat jellyfish, shrimp, sponges, shellfish and sometimes seaweed.
While the Loggerheads can be located usually in the North and South Atlantic, but “often frequent inland water bodies and will travel hundreds of miles out to sea,” (“Loggerhead Sea Turtle“)
Loggerhead turtles are named for the large heads, which support their strong jaws allowing them to eat hard-shelled prey. Their shell is a reddish-brown color and their undersides are a pale yellow. They weigh about 250lbs. and are three feet long. They are considered to be endangered.
