Background

Jefe is a 78.7cm SCLmin (70.4 kg) male loggerhead sea turtle that was captured by research trawling off Jekyll Island, GA. His plastron edge to tip of tail length (43.5cm, 55% of SCLmin), with a cloaca that extended past the carapace edge, suggests that Jefe is a mature animal. However, Jefe is slightly (3.3cm) smaller than the minimum adult size considered by the NW Atlantic Loggerhead Sea Turtle Recovery Plan. As a potential new recruit to the breeding population, Jefe promises to be a very interesting male loggerhead sea turtle to study.
