The hawksbill #turtle gets its name from the shape of its curved, pointed beak, which resembles that of a bird of prey. 🦅 The shape and sharpness of their #beak enables them to reach into small holes and crevices in #coral reefs to find their favorite food - sponges. 🧽

This is called cloacal #respiration! 🤓 When turtles #hibernate, they rely on stored energy and uptake oxygen from the pond water by moving it across body surfaces that are flush with blood vessels.🐢 #Turtles have one area that is especially well vascularized 👀 their butts!
