  • Hawksbill Turtle

    Hawksbill Turtle

    The Hawksbill Turtle (Eretmochelys imbricata) is a fully marine turtle that lives in shallow waters around coral reefs. Its brown shells are strikingly coloured with irregular yellow and orange mottles, and its upper jaw protrudes far beyond its lower one, giving its mouth the distinctive beak-like shape from which it gets its name.

    The Garlic Vine (Mansoa hymenaea) gets its name from the distinct garlic smells produced when the leaves are crushed, although this woody climber is not related to the common edible garlic at all!
