Lone Sea Turtle in the anchorage at Isla San Francisco.
Approximately 10-15 juvenile Atlantic Green sea turtles were feeding along the south jetty at Mustang Island State Park on both 7/15 and 7/16 in the evenings (possibly other times, I was only there in the evenings) around 4-6pm. They would feed among the rocks and dive then resurface a little away from the jetty. All of them were within 50m of the jetty, primarily along the south side but there were 4-5 individuals on the north side of the jetty.
Two female green sea turtles with FP tumors (mostly around the eyes-one did have a tumor on it's flipper). Several other turtles in the area (one male, two females and one juvenile) showed no tumor growth.
Single turtle, swimming near anchored boats.
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.
