Photo Journal: Graceful debut

A baby green sea turtle that hatched on Aug. 4, 2018, is seen at Enoshima Aquarium in the city of Fujisawa, Kanagawa Prefecture, in this recent photo. The baby, which measures about 6 centimeters long, is on display in front of the penguin pool on the second floor of the facility. This is the second time to breed the animal at the facility following initial success in 2013. The mother turtle laid 76 eggs in sand at the exhibition facility "Beach of Sea Turtle" on June 15 and five hatched on Aug. 4. A turtle keeper said, "It just started to flounder about. I hope it will grow steadily." (Photo courtesy of Enoshima Aquarium)
