When painting sea turtles, consider using blues and greens for the water background to complement their natural hues and highlight their aquatic environment.

Interesting Facts about Sea Turtle

Sea turtles have roamed the oceans for millions of years, playing key roles in marine ecosystems by maintaining healthy seagrass beds and coral reefs. These creatures have an incredible navigational ability, with some species traveling thousands of miles between feeding and nesting grounds. Notably, the temperature of the sand where sea turtle eggs are buried determines the sex of the hatchlings, a phenomenon affected by climate change. Despite their resilience, sea turtles face threats from habitat loss, pollution, and bycatch, making conservation efforts essential for their survival.
