These ancient animals were only on land when they were eggs. As soon as the eggs hatch, the turtle goes straight to the sea, then swims across the free sea. Only female turtles occasionally rise to land to lay eggs, male turtles throughout their lives are spent in the ocean.

Turtles have geomagnetic imprinting, which is a natural navigation tool. Although turtles always roam the ocean for thousands of kilometers, he will still return to the beach where he was born, to lay eggs.
