Incredible occasion the world’s largest sea turtle has emerged from the water

With a huge, teardrop-shaped body, leatherback turtles have the most hydrodynamic body design of any sea turtle. The turtles move through the water with the aid of their substantial front flippers. The leatherback sea turtle has flattened forelimbs like other sea turtles do in order to swim in the open ocean. None of the flipper pairs have claws. Among the living sea turtles, the leatherback’s flippers are the largest in relation to its body. The longest front flippers of any sea turtle, the leatherback’s can reach lengths of up to 2.7 meters (8.9 feet) in huge specimens.
