Where Do Turtles Sleep?

 In Wildlife

Snorkeling my favorite bay and hanging with a couple beautiful green sea turtles, I found myself wondering how they sleep. Where do they go? Do they float near the top for air, or take a big deep breath for about of sea slumber?

In my lifetime, I have witnessed a fish sleeping and I’ll never forget it: I was on a night snorkel and shone my underwater flashlight on a reef that glistened back a sleeping fish. He was snoring. Eyes closed, gills expanding, he swayed ever so slightly to and fro with the current. He looked peaceful and I didn’t wake him up. Sleep on, little fishy. I’m just looking for the turtle.
