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.

(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.
