Information about the Flatback Sea Turtle:
The Flatback Sea Turtle is native to the warm tropical waters of the continental shelf of Australia. They are a member of the sea turtle family of Cheloniidae, and the only member of the genus Natator. These medium-sized aquatic reptiles are generally found in the bays, shallow, grassy waters, coral reefs, estuaries, and lagoons on the northern coast of Australia and off the entire coast of Papua New Guinea. They generally stay in shallow waters no more than 200 feet deep. They usually grow to about 3 feet in length, with a carapace of 35 inches. They can weigh between 150-300 pounds. At one time the Flatback was thought to be related to the Kemp's or Ridley's Sea Turtles, but in the 1980s it was determined to be a separate genus and species.
