Plastic Loggerhead Sea Turtle

The detail on this miniature makes it look like a photo from a magazine!

Our Plastic Loggerhead Sea Turtle

Our small plastic loggerhead sea turtle toy is just the right size replica for your animal life shoebox diorama. This small, loggerhead sea turtle model will fit in a shoe box along with examples of sealife from a Pacific reef. Add a manta ray, tropical fish or jellyfish; create a landscape with rocks, plants, seaweed, make an ocean or reef from anything that strikes your imagination, and there you go - a scene of life on our planet. Our plastic toy loggerhead sea turtle is made of solid plastic and is quite durable. Be sure to take a look at our other sea turtles.

About Sea Turtles

All six species of sea turtles in the U.S. (green sea turtle, hawksbill, Kemp's ridley, leatherback, loggerhead and olive ridley) are listed as threatened or endangered on the U.S. Endangered and Threatened Wildlife List. Sea turtles are aquatic reptiles and live most of their lives in the ocean. Sea turtles are excellent divers, the Leatherback species routinely dive more than 1,000 ft., and may reach depths of more than 3,900 ft. seeking jellyfish. Although they must swim to the ocean surface to breathe periodically, some turtles can remain underwater for as long as 5 hours without breathing! Currently sea turtles are endangered because not only are they hunted by people as a food source, but they are losing their beach habitat to recreational development, drowning in fishing and shrimp nets, and ingesting plastic trash.
