Sea turtles are ancient reptiles. They have swum the oceans for hundreds of millions of years. Most turtle species are either endangered or on the verge of extinction.
The turtle is a symbol of wisdom in Chinese mythology.
Hawaiian legend recalls a green sea turtle named Kauila. This turtle, Kauila, could transfigure into a girl. Legend recalls she watched over the children who played on Punalu'u Beach. Punalu'u Beach is a black sand beach on the Big Island; Hawaii between the communities of Pahala and Na'alehu. The story relates that when Kauila's mother dug a nest it created a fresh water spring. The water rose from the spring and quenched the keiki (children's) thirst. In Hawaiian lore, Kauila, is the mythical mother of all turtles.
It is suspected that ancient sailors used turtles as guides to lead them during their first voyages to Hawaii.
The green turtle, (chelonian mydas), lives close to Hawaiian shores. The green turtle is called the "honu". Many ancient Hawaiian petroglyphs depict the turtle.
Hawaiian monarchy, chiefs and kings, enjoyed turtle flesh as food. Turtle soup is popular worldwide.
Hawaiian green sea turtles can grow to nearly four feet and weigh hundreds of pounds by the time they reach 25 years of maturity. The grayish brown shell of the green turtle is heart-shaped. The body is green.
