S e c r e t s

This box figurine portrays sea turtles at their most vulnerable as they hatch and make a mad dash to the sea. The seven species are inscribed throughout: Green, Hawksbill, Leatherback, Loggerhead, Flatback, Kemps Ridley and Olive Ridley. Interestingly, the sex of the turtle depends on the temperature of the eggs. At 28C they become males and at 32C they are females. Anywhere in between is a tossup. Since sea turtles hatch at night, the interior portrays a turtle with a torch and compass.
