Recently we were lucky to have some Green Sea Turtle and Hawksbill Sea Turtle hatchlings at the same time; so we are happy that we can show you both in comparison. On the cover photo above the Green See Turtle is on the right, on the left you see the much smaller Hawksbill baby. From head to toe, ups better from head to little tail the Green Sea Turtle hatchling measured 9 cm (3.5 inches), the shell was 5.5 cm x 4.5 cm (2.2 in x 1.8 in), while the measurements for the Hawksbill baby were 7.5 cm (3 inches) in total length, shell size 4.5 cm x 4 cm (1.8 in x 1.5 in). Both were quite big fellas for their species. Even when they are adults this size difference remains.
