BABY SEA TURTLES SWIM TO HAND THAT FEEDS THEM AT SEA WORLD.
Three-inch long baby green sea turtles swim eat as they eat krill from
the hand of senior aquarist Bryan Mercer, July 2, 2003 at Sea World in
San Diego. For the first time in Sea World San Diego's 39-year history,
aquarists have successfully incubated and hatched green sea turtles.
Six of the surviving 21 hatchlings, born less than a month ago, are on
display to the public at the Park. The turtles are an
endangered/threatened species worldwide, can grow to weight up to
150kg, and enjoy a lifespan of up to 80 years. REUTERS/Mike Blake
