Turtles are reptiles. Most of them live on land and use lungs to breathe air.
Many reptiles are hatched from eggs that have been laid on the sand. Turtle eggs have a very tough shell. Once they hatch, they are ready to live on their own. They don't need mothers to take care of them.
Math Fun: A loggerhead turtle lays 108 eggs and they all hatch. Another loggerhead turtle lays 94 eggs and they all hatch. Another loggerhead turtle lays 103 eggs and they all hatch. If the eggs hatch at the same time, how many baby turtles will be crawling to the sea after they hatch?
