Baby Leatherback sea turtle, Dermochelys coriacea. Just a few minutes after hatching and already swimming away from the beach where it came out of the egg. Leatherback turtles have the most hydrodynamic body design of any sea turtle with large front flippers that powers the turtles thought the water. It can easily be differentiated from other sea turtles by its lack of a bony shell, hence the name. Instead, its carapace is covered by skin and oily flesh. Costa Rica
