Sea turtles are found in all the world's oceans with the exception of the Arctic Ocean, and some species travel between oceans.
The Flatback turtle is found solely on the northern coast of Australia.
The Leatherback Sea Turtle is the largest, measuring six or seven feet (2 m) in length at maturity, and three to five feet (1 to 1.5 m) in width, weighing up to 1300 pounds (600 kg).
Sea turtles have an extraordinary sense of time and location.
They are highly sensitive to the Earth's magnetic field and probably use it to navigate.
Sea turtles of all species are endangered.
