Bermuda's Green Sea Turtles and other critters

For my Camera Critter  post I am showing the Green Sea Turtles we saw while touring Bermuda. Our guide stopped to show us these Green Turtles outside the aquarium. A group of children were there feeding the turtles lettuce (at least it looked like lettuce)  when we got there at end of  their feeding time and we were offered the leftovers to feed.





Bermuda has a great conservation program going on for the Green Sea Turtles. The link above explains the history of the Green Sea Turtle, fished almost to the point of extinction. I am happy that Bermuda cares so much about these endangered animals. In the USA it seems to be a constant battle to keep animals and birds on the endangered list and to protect them. Being an animal lover, I am all for protecting all the species that may be even close to being endangered or near extinction.


These Green Sea turtles looked like gentle creatures, we just had to watch our fingers when feeding them. My son and his friend were doing the feeding while I was taking photos.





The water in Bermuda is so clear you can look down and see the fish.



I always enjoy seeing the critters and that includes this cute Lizzy the lizard.



I hope you enjoyed my Green Sea Turtles and critters from Bermuda. To see more cute and wonderful critters check out Misty Dawn's Camera Critters. Thanks  to Misty for hosting and thanks for stopping by to see my post.
