Shell; found washed up on beach
A few Green Sea Turtles were regularly seen foraging around the Navarre Beach Pier. Given the density of fisherman on the pier, I was concerned about their safety, but I never saw one hooked during the several visits to the pier we made. I'd estimate the carapace size on these two examples was on the order of 1.5 to 2 ft long.

The Eastern Pacific Green turtles, Chelonia mydas agassizi, are not common nesters to Guatemala, with extremely few documented nests per year. However they do occupy a foraging area called La Poza del Nance, nr Sipacte.
This specific EPG only laid 17 eggs which were buried in the La Barrona hatchery. It was presumed that she was uncomfortable with her nesting site as made several attempts. She was flipper tagged with PC394/PC395, had carapace measurements of 82cm length (CCL) and 82 cm width (CCW). Although Akazul does not permit night photography of sea turtles and hatchlings, in order to minimise disturbance, due to the extreme rarity of this occasion it was photographed after her nesting ordeal and when she was returning to the ocean in order for the successful nesting activity to be officially documented.
This very large individual was slowly cruising along the edge of the reef (she was also missing her right front flipper)
The green sea turtle (Chelonia mydas), also known as the green turtle, black (sea) turtle, or Pacific green turtle, is a large sea turtle of the family Cheloniidae. It is the only species in the genus Chelonia. Its range extends throughout tropical and subtropical seas around the world, with two distinct populations in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. The common name comes from the usually green fat found beneath its carapace.
