Newly hatched leatherback sea turtles, Vieques NWR

(Dermochelys coriacea)

A close-up of the newly hatched leatherback sea turtles. These animals often stand a better chance of survival if they go to the sea at night, when they are less likely to be eaten by land crabs and other predators. They are released on the beach at night.
