The largest of all the sea turtles, Leatherback Turtles feed mainly on jellyfish and other soft-bodied marines animals. They have the widest distribution of any turtle. I struggled to find good photographic references to help me correctly paint the soft, backward-pointing, spines that line the turtle’s mouth and throat, and assist in retaining their gelatinous prey. Luckily, at the 27th Sea Turtle Symposium, in Myrtle Beach, I had most of the world’s Leatherback Turtle experts at hand to give me some guidance. Thanks everyone!
