Olive Ridley Turtle

Olive ridley turtles (Lepidochelys olivacea) are the smallest marine turtle, living in warm waters close to shore as adults. Female olive ridleys take part in mass nestings that can involve 150,000 individual turtles crawling up a beach at night to find a spot for their clutch of around 100 eggs.
