Leatherback sea turtles are impressive reptiles. These bad boys have one of the sleekest appearances of any reptile thanks to a tear-drop shaped carapace that replaces the standard bony shell. Leatherbacks are massive too, with some hefty monsters weighing in at over 1,500 lbs (700 kg) – making this large turtle the fourth largest reptile on Earth - by NOAA / ScienceBasedLife / Wikipedia / Not Exactly Rocket Science

The making of our giant sea turtle with an eco friendly twist!

Once all the pieces were dry it was time to assemble! We turned our turtle onto its back and with pva glue we glued them into place. Next we taped them all down .We filled in between the limbs with more scrunched up news paper to make a slightly rounded under side to the shell and then paper mache'd over them all to hold it all firmly into place!.....this took a few more days to dry........
