In an interesting experiment scientists tagged wild baby turtles like this one to see how far they swim. The surprising results found that the turtles travel around 4,500 miles despite the fact that they are only six months old. The turtles were tagged with customised 9 gram tags and were monitored by satellite as they made their journey. To put the distance they travel into context it is like travelling from London to Mumbai. Amazing for such little creatures.
