Loggerhead Sea Turtles
Ocean Realm is home to Loggerhead Sea Turtles, including everyone’s favorite: Bob, a female Loggerhead that can often be seen greeting guests in front of the viewing window. Loggerheads average around 36 inches long when fully grown and weigh about 300 pounds. Their skin ranges from yellow to brown in color, with a reddish-brown shell.
Loggerheads are native to the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian oceans as well as the Mediterranean Sea. It spends most of its life in saltwater, with females briefly coming ashore to lay eggs. In addition, Loggerheads are omnivorous, feeding mainly on bottom dwelling invertebrates. Its large and powerful jaws serve as an effective tool for dismantling its prey. Did you know? The loggerhead has a greater list of known prey than any other sea turtle. Other food items include sponges, coral, sea pens and more.
