Hi All,

Could it be one of the following facts?:

1) They have flippers, used for swimming
2) Their shell is covered by a smooth "skin-like" material

Thanks pilane and naturelover :redface:

Ok lets see...

Most active at night, it occasionally looks for food in the daytime. In the breeding season, females leave their saltwater homes to lay up to eighteen eggs at a time on the seashore.

They spend most of their lives in the ocean water, coming ashore only to rest or to lay their eggs. Once in a while, they may travel into mangrove swamps. Mangroves are tropical trees and shrubs that form thick masses along coastlines.

It is not endangered or threatened

What am I thinking of?

Thanks ZZ

Though I think it was more luck than skill which got me the answer.
Now let me think of a question.
Ask not what your plant can do for you but what you can do for your planet.
