    Many different organisms have been known to latch onto a sea turtle's back. What do you think of this method of underwater transportation?

  • Carl_ Wheezy on May 8, 2018

  • KAIBI on August 7, 2019

    Wish the people in my area stop eating turtles. I had a rude awakening when I saw some live turtles in a sack in my grandma's house, I cried and attempted to free the turtles but I got punished and got called stupid for trying to free them.

  • TheSporehacker on October 3, 2020

    The Japanese would eat those barnacles

  • Ghislaine Porte on October 12, 2020

    Les bernacles filtrent l eau seul ça va mais à plusieurs c est lourd et handicapant pour la nage de l animal tortues ou baleines.

  • Mary Ann Davis on October 16, 2020

    I've seen videos with turtles absolutely covered with barnacles, so many they can hardly swim. If they cover it's face, it has to hard time eating. I can't agree with the commentator saying the parasitic things on turtles pose no danger to the turtle. Not true.

  • Myres Santos on November 2, 2020

    Coloquem a tradução para entendermos. Obrigada

  • Mela on December 5, 2020

    Ma scusi visto che c'era: xche nn gliela tirato via quel mollusco????? Bah

  • z monsterk on January 11, 2021

    In truth while barnacles (which are a crustacean) can create heavy loads on turtles, enough to cause severe health issues and death they are technically NOT parasites. Dumb title to this that is obviously written by some moron with very little knowledge of the subject.

  • Pop Corn on January 29, 2021

    Non parasitic??? Barnacles weigh it down killing it!!!!!

  • Am Pa on February 10, 2021

    Does anyone know if dislodged barnacles die because they cannot cement onto another object and get buried in the seafloor?

  • Red Crystal on February 19, 2021

    Not true, these parasites can hurt the turtle if too many accumulate on them. they should be removed when possible

  • Brian Redban on February 21, 2021

    I wonder who is eating all these beautiful sea turtles probably China they eat every thing rlse

  • BOSS FITNESS on March 2, 2021

    Why can’t we just eat barnacles as opposed to turtles?

  • Techie Abhishek.S on March 9, 2021

    Sadly green turtles are killed for their meat & eggs, Turtles too!!??!!??

  • Jin kam on April 15, 2021

    They are sacred

  • Rich Medchen on May 21, 2021

    Poor turtles!

  • Tom Noodles on July 9, 2021

    They should have removed the barnacle from the turtle. No respect for the turtle.

  • dankwheats24 on August 2, 2021

    I want to remove it and squish it

  • Jacquelyn Mathews on October 16, 2021

    I just wanna chip that big barnacle off & pull that remora away from it.
