Two years ago, the Aquarium has been delighted to welcome Belle, a cute small loggerhead sea turtle (caretta caretta) born on June the 23th 2011 in Antibes (Marineland).

She had been left in the Aquarium’s care within the context of the "Mission Caretta".

 

Belle has grown since then:
As a newborn, she was only 19.4g. She reached the kilo when she arrived at the Aquarium.
Today she is 7.7 kg on the scales and an extra 20 cm long when it comes to her carapace!

 

Some news of Rebelle
Belle wasn’t the only sea turtle …she came along with Rebelle, another loggerhead turtle who went back to Antibes last March.
She is doing just fine, with 24 kg on the scales at her last weighing!

 

Belle and Rebelle are sisters!
The genetic analysis have proven that Belle and Rebelle share the same mother and father.
Not only they are linked by their names but also by blood.
