Hi all,

Just a quick note to let you know I have very close-up pictures of an 
adult green turtle in the Galapagos munching on some coralline algae 
and dead coral underneath - contact me if you are interested in seeing 
the images. I am not a turtle researcher and have no idea if this is 
normal or not, but it is not something I had seen before...
