R17 Sea Turtles
Issue Date: February 22, 2011
On February 22, 2011, the Marshall Islands Postal Service Authority issued four new stamps featuring beautiful sea turtles. Actually brown in color, the Green Turtle is named for its
greenish-hued fat. Algae, the principal staple in its diet, gives the fat its color. Able to move air from one part of the lung to another, the Loggerhead Turtle can displace its center of
gravity at will. Its legs are flattened laterally and serve as powerful swimming paddles. Reaching a length of eight feet and a weight of one ton, the Leatherback Turtle is the largest of all
turtles. Unlike other marine turtles, it has a smooth sheet of skin covering its back in place of a shell. The smallest marine turtle is the Hawksbill Turtle, found in the warm waters of the
tropics. Its shell is covered with horny plates that overlap like shingles.
