Flatback turtles (Natator depressus) can be identified by their smooth shell with scales that don’t overlap. They are an olive green colour on top and pale on the underside. All recorded nests for flatbacks are in northern Australia, from the Pilbara and Kimberley in Western Australia through the Northern Territory down to southern Queensland. Hatchlings feed on tiny animals in the water (zooplankton) and adults on soft-bodied sea creatures that live on the ocean floor such as sponges, soft corals, feather stars and sea pens.
