This Is One Giant Turtle! No, Really, It Is!


A giant turtle, weighing not less than 450 pounds was found on the coasts of South Carolina. The impressive discovery has astounded marine biologists and regular people alike. This is the first time a turtle of this size was found in the region. The turtle, which belongs to an endangered species, was found on Yarvey-Sur Island. The region is considered to be a natural reserve and is located near Georgetown, South Carolina. For this reason, biologists have called the turtle “Yawkey”. The turtle is more than 10 years old, but scientists have not been able to determine its sex. Because it cannot survive in a man-made environment, the turtle will be released into the ocean.
