What animals eat adult loggerhead sea turtles?

All types of sharks, specificlly Great White Sharks, eat loggerhead sea turtles. Tiger Sharks are also a predator of the loggerhead sea turtle. When loggerheads go above the surface of the water to get a breath of air, they take a long two minutes to replenish their oxygen supply. During this time, a shark(usually a tiger shark) will take advantage of the turtle and eat it then and there.

I've done a little research on this, just returning from Florida during their season, and I have found that the period is somewhere around 53-55 days. Interesting to note that the temperature while in the nest will determine the sex of the turtle.

Where do loggerhead turtle's find shelter?

Loggerheads are commonly found underneath a shelf on a reef. They are able to take a breath then submerge for a long time to rest. They are also different from other species of sea turtle in that they allow their shells to become disguised with lots of barnacles and sea weeds. Often a loggerhead looks like a submerged log.

What do loggerhead turtles eat?

Loggerheads are carnivores, meaning they eat mostly other animals. The baby loggerheads feed on small animals living in the seaweed called sargassum, where they spend early years. Adult loggerheads eat mostly bottom dwelling invertebrates such as whelks, other mollusks, horseshoe crabs, and sea urchins.

Primarily carnivorous during most of their lives. Hatchlings often eat sponges, jellyfishes, sargassum weed, small gastropods and crustaceans. Juveniles, sub-adults and adults feed upon conch, clams, as well as other crustaceans. They have powerful jaws that enable them to easily crush the hard shells of their prey. During migration through the open sea, loggerheads eat jellyfishes, pteropods, floating mollusks, floating egg clusters, squids and flying fishes.

Care of Turtles
Loggerhead Sea Turtles

If you found a turtle in a pond should you keep it?

That depends on what type of turtle you found. Some turtles (such as snapping turtles) are dangerous and probably shouldn't be handled. Others (such as red-eared sliders) are harmless and make decent pets. Make sure you know what kind of turtle you have and what will be required for you to take care of it. In most cases it's better to leave wild animals in their natural habitat. They are happier there. red eared sliders have a a yellow bellie and a red stripe where their ear should be, if it has a yellow belly and not the red ear, it is most likely a yellow bellie slider both are good pets, if it doesn't meet that descripion then you should definitely not keep it. If it does you might not want to keep it though, it might have parents who will be very sad if they lost their child. Think twice before plucking one out of your pond and calling it your pet.
