Green Sea Turtle (Chelonia mydas)

Diorama//Dimensions//Catalog Number

This diorama is one of our "Self-suspension" Series products, where very delicate miniatures are "suspending" in the cubes without any visible support.

  • In the Diorama: A juvenile green sea turtle is diving to the bottom of an aquarium tank.  A group of yellow tang (Zebrasoma flavescens) and black tang (Zebrasoma rostratum) are eating algae and parasites off the turtle's skin and cleaning its shell. These animals work together in ways that benefit each other, a type of interaction called symbiosis or mutualism. Two lookdown (Selene vomer), which are carnivorous fish, are attracted by the smaller fish feeding on the turtle's shell.
  • Miniature Scale: 1:16
