Hawaiin Green Sea Turtle

06/19/10 – Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle – The largest of the common turtles found around Hawaii is the Hawaiian green sea. Basking lazily in the warm afternoon sun, you will find this large creature on black lava rocks. This is a very common almost daily occurrence.

Did you know that these turtles are protected by law? They are becoming more extinct and therefore it is against the law to touch or bother them in the ocean or on the land. While snorkeling you will see them as they glide by looking for food.

Because they are normally found in tones varying from dark brown to olive, I have created this particular body out of brown glass. The shell is created using some Dichroic glass and is enclosed with a clear piece of glass.
