Kahala Mandarin Oriential Hawaii Hotel outside of Honolulu, Hawaii,
November 9, 2003. The threatened green Hawaiian sea turtles are brought
in as rescued babies then gradually taught to take care of themselves,
Consequently they are then released into the Pacific Ocean and
monitored. When these saltwater reptiles are active, they must swim to
the ocean surface to breathe every few minutes, and when resting, they
can remain underwater for as long as two and one-half hours without
breathing. NO RIGHTS CLEARANCES OR PERMISSIONS ARE REQUIRED FOR THIS IMAGE REUTERS/Lucy Pemoni

A 30 kilogram (66 pound) Green Turtle has it's mouth opened by staff while
on the operating table for a check-up at Sydney's Taronga Zoo April 30,
2003. The turtle was brought into the zoo's clinic by rangers who noticed
the animal was breathing with difficulty and preferred to spend most of its
time out of the water. The turtle was examined using a special scope that
was inserted into its stomach in an effort to try and find any foreign
bodies that might be lodged and causing discomfort. Pictures of the month
