Sea turtles swim in all of the world’s oceans. Some sea turtles stay in the same area their whole life. Other sea turtles migrate. They have special areas for nesting, or laying eggs. They have separate areas for feeding. They may travel thousands of miles between the two areas.

Sea turtles come in different sizes. The biggest are leatherback sea turtles. Their shells can be as long as a human adult. Leatherbacks can be as heavy as two grand pianos. The smallest sea turtles are around two feet long.
