Fast Facts Sea Turtle Diet:
Sea Turtles are toothless animals; instead, they use powerful beak-like jaws to crush, bite and tear food.
A Sea Turtle’s jaw is specific to the variety of food it eats.
A Sea Turtle’s eat anything when young, but their diet becomes specific when they reach adulthood.
Please report any marine animals in distress to the Sheriff's Dispatch 904.824.8304.
