Hawksbill turtles are found throughout the tropical waters of the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian Oceans. Named for their narrow, pointed beak, they are also recognizable by a distinctive pattern of overlapping scales on their exquisitely colored and patterned shells. This species typically avoids deep waters, preferring coastlines and coral reefs where they can find sponges, a primary food source for these omnivores.
Beautiful creatures, they make incredible migrations in order to move from feeding sites to tropical beaches that often serve as nesting grounds. Hawksbill turtles come to New Zealand every year from Fiji; although they’ve been sighted as far south as Cook Strait, they are mostly seen in the upper North Island of New Zealand in the clear, shallow waters of the island shelve.
Like many sea turtles, hawksbills are a critically endangered species due mostly to human impact. Hawksbill eggs are still eaten around the world despite the turtle’s international protected status, and they are often killed for their flesh and their stunning shells that are highly valuable in some marketplaces.

The 1 oz Hawksbill Turtles have been one of my favorites ever since I bought my first one. I've been adding them steadily to the stack because they are priced right and I just love the design. They're beautiful. When I saw they had a 2 oz version, I knew I had to get some. They arrived today and I couldn't be more pleased. They're the same diameter as the 1 oz version, but much thicker and have a great heft to them with the additional ounce of silver. If you like turtles, I'd definitely recommend that you give the 2 oz a try. I'll be adding more very soon.
