Loggerhead sea turtle, Caretta caretta 

This species is the largest hard-shelled turtle in the world. During routine activity loggerhead sea turtles dive for about 4 to 5 minutes and surface to breathe for 1 to 3 seconds. That’s why it’s more or less easy to see them ! Juvenile turtles come in Azores archipelago for a part of their migration, before to going back home to Florida .
