Seriously I just gave her a bath.
Don’t even know how she accomplished this.
Baby’s just rude.

Despite human’s frustration, Pearl continues to practice her front line maneuvers undetected. Camouflaged and barricade, all in record time. NO FEAR! #Turtpocalypse

incredible.

Fun fact: Unlike other Sea Turtles, The leatherback turtle has a thick ‘leather’ like skin supported by, but not attached to,  small bones. This allows them to dive far deeper into the ocean, withstanding stronger water pressure than any other turtle is capable of. Its also the largest living turtle.

Is that you @turtlefeed?

I might disappoint many here but I’m pretty proud to see that this turtle is not succumbing to that Candle pin bowling thing we do in massachusetts. Turtles are too wise to go with that concept.
