What a beautiful picture! The Green (Sea) Turtle (Chelonia mydas) is listed as Endangered. This large and long-lived turtle can be found in tropical and sub-tropical oceans around the world. The greatest threats to this species survival is illegal fishing and being caught by mistake (by catch) in commercial fishing operations.
This picture is from an article called the “RESCUING HUG” The article details the first week of life of a set of twins. Apparently each were in their respective incubators and one was not expected to live. A hospital nurse fought against the hospital rules and placed the babies in one incubator. When they were placed together, the healthier of the two, threw an arm over her sister in an endearing embrace. The smaller baby’s heart stabilized and temperature rose to normal ♥
