Turtles http://wlrn.org en From The Curious Vault At The Miami Science Museum: Turtles http://wlrn.org/post/curious-vault-miami-science-museum-turtles <p></p><p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">A living fossil, sea turtles still nest up and down the busy and overbuilt South Florida coast and travel past our shores throughout the year. The various species of ocean roaming turtle are approximately 200-300 million years old but because they lay their eggs on our beaches, scientists are able to closely study the nomadic animals. For this reason, and with modern techniques such as satellite tagging, we can occasionally glimpse closely into their mysterious lives.</span></p> Wed, 30 Jan 2013 12:00:00 +0000 Nathaniel Sandler 8466 at http://wlrn.org From The Curious Vault At The Miami Science Museum: Turtles
