These sea turtle videos will let you know how the undersea world looks like. Before you click to play the undersea videos, here's just a bit of info about the sea turtle.

Sea turtles are found in all the oceans of the world except the Arctic Ocean. The 7 living species of sea turtles includes green sea turtle, flatback, hawksbill, leatherback, Kemp's Ridley, Olive Ridley and loggerhead. One most interesting fact about sea turtles is that they are too sensitive to magnetic field of the Earth and use it to navigate through different directions. Speculated life span of sea turtles is around 80 years. Interestingly, most of the sea turtle species return back to their birth places, which indicates an imprint of the magnetic field of that particular location under the sea. After around 30 years of maturing adult female sea turtles tend to return back to the land to nest at the night, which is on the same beach where they hatched.
