You can find hawksbill turtles in tropical waters around coral reefs. The only time you will find them out of the water is when female turtles crawl onto a beach, dig a hole, and then lay 100 to 140 eggs. Once they’ve chosen a beach, female turtles stick with it, returning to it every time they lay eggs. Only one out of every 100 eggs will become an adult turtle, because so many other animals like to eat tiny turtles!
