Loggerhead Sea Turtles are Endangered
When most people think of sea thrtles, they probably have in mind the loggerhead. (Whether they remember the name of it or not.) That's because the species is found in more places than other species.
They live in four of the seven seas. Those are the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian Oceans, as well as the Mediterranean Sea. Many people who don't go out in the water see them when the females come ashore to lay their eggs.
Despite the widespread distribution of the species, they are still categorized as 'Endangered.'
Loggerheads have long lifespans, and can n live to be over 60 or 65 years old in the wild.
They also can grow to an astounding size. They are the largest sea turtles with hard shells. (Leatherbacks can get larger, but they have soft shells.)
How big can do they grow? A averagel adult loggerhead weighs nearly 300 pounds. That's average. But the largest one ever found weighed in at astonishing 1202 pounds. That's as heavy as four very large men!
What do they eat to grow so big? Lots of things! Fish, seaweed, crabs, sponges, sand dollars, squid, just about annything they can munch down on with their powerful jaws.
Turtles are famous for being slow. One thing loggerheads are pretty slow about is becoming mothers. Those that live in the seas around North America and Australia don't lay their first eggs until they are 28 to 33 years old. In other parts of the world, they start younger, a few as early as the age of 17. But even that is old by the standards of the animal kingdom.
This pewter drawer pull in a brushed satin finish is just lovely with treasures from the sea on it.

Naming the Seven Seas
Sea creatures live in all of the seven seas.
But, what are the seven seas? . . . Well, that depends . . .
When I was a child, if you asked someone to name the seven seas, you might have heard this traditional list: "The Atlantic, Pacific, Indian, and Arctic Oceans, the Mediterranean and Caribbean Seas, and the Gulf of Mexico"
But today, this answer might be considered correct: North Atlantic, South Atlantic, North Pacific, South Pacific, Indian, Arctic, and Antarctic Oceans.
And if your time machine were to take you back to before Columbus, the Seven Seas might have been named as the Adriatic Sea, the Red Sea, the Black Sea, the Mediterranean Sea, the Arabian Sea, the Caspian Sea, and the North Sea
