Hawksbill, "Melinda" foraging on the reef
Cleaning station at Honokowai Pt. Male has large stainless steel hook in its neck.
Newcomer to the reef seen resting out in ~40' of depth
Young hawksbill turtle consuming unknown plant/animal matter. Need help identifying this mystery meal. Large colony of coral was laced with strings of transparent orbs and no evidence of more of this on adjacent colonies. The hawksbill appeared intent on consuming all available and next day there was none left to see. Depth was approximately 8-12'
