Green sea turtle

A green sea turtle sticks its head out to get a breath of air while swimming inside a holding tank at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach. The turtle was rescued from an intake channel near a Long Beach power plant, where it had been within range of people who tried to snag it with hooks or impale it with makeshift spears.
