The #HawksbillSeaTurtle (Eretmochelys imbricata) is a species of #seaturtle native to warm, tropical waters across the globe. It gets its name from its sharp, curved beak, which distinguishes it from other marine turtles. It grows about three feet long and typically weighs around 180 pounds, although a specimen that weighed almost 300 pounds has been recorded. The Hawksbill Sea Turtle feeds predominantly on sponges, but will also eat crustaceans and fish. Another large portion of its diet consists of jellyfish, comb jellies, and deadly Portuguese Man O’ War. Because of its unique diet, the flesh of this #turtle can often become toxic. It is also known to display biofluorescence, the first reptile to do so, likely because of its diet. The Hawksbill Sea Turtle has often become the victim of commercial fishing, as its shell was the primary source of tortoiseshell material for decorative purposes. Although the capture and trade of this species has been outlawed, continued poaching, as well as environmental changes, have caused the IUCN Red List to list the Hawksbill Sea Turtle as critically endangered.
