The sea turtle can have a lifespan of 80 years. It takes decades for sea turtles to reach sexual maturity. After mating at sea, adult female sea turtles return to land to nest at night. Different species of sea turtles exhibit various levels of philopatry. In the extreme case, females return to the beach where they hatched. This can take place every two to four years in maturity. They make from one to eight nests per season.

The adult Loggerhead Sea Turtle weighs approximately 135 kg. (some may grow up to 450 kg.) and spends most of its life in saltwater and estuarine habitats, with females briefly coming ashore to lay eggs. The loggerhead sea turtle has a low reproductive rate; females lay an average of four egg clutches and then become quiescent, producing no eggs for two to three years. The loggerhead reaches sexual maturity between 17–33 years and has a lifespan of 47–67 years. Photo from BBC Earth.
