    4. My husband took this snapshot of me playing with a baby. This one I think was between 4-6 mths if I remember correctly.

    Thanks everyone :) I love turtles. The one I was holding was so cute. He was "swimming" in air while I held him.

    The first one was the adult "mating" pool. Those were about 4+ ft long. The rest of the place had them split in various ages and the babies still were young enough to not bite so you could just scoope them out of the water. Once they get older they bite!

    Looks like an interesting spot to visit. The third shot is gorgeous. I also like the second one, showing the bony mouth area.

    Grand Cayman is a really nice place to visit. Although we were only there for a few hours from the cruise, I spent a week there before. The water is amazing.... This is Seven Mile Beach:
