Hawksbill Turtle

Hawksbill turtles (Eretmochelys imbricata) are small to medium-sized turtles, but can get as large as 200 lbs (91 kg). Adults live among healthy coral reef communities, feeding primarily on sponges, but they also eat other invertebrates like sea cucumbers, tunicates (sea squirts), crabs, sea stars, and mollusks, as well as some algae.
