I recently visited the Wildlife World Zoo and Aquarium, and was able to get a few good shots of a beautiful, colorful turtle: Kemp’s ridley (ridley is a kind of turtle). Enjoy my artistic renderings…they are fairly close to the originals, but enhance detail and color and seem to give the images more life and energy. The Kemp’s ridley is in the brand new 4th aquarium building, which is full of fascinating sea creatures.
“These turtles change color as they mature. As hatchlings, they are almost entirely a dark gray-black, but mature adults have a yellow-green or white plastron and a grey-green carapace,” says Wikipedia. I have added some links if you’re interested in learning more about this sweet little creature.
