The Olive ridley turtles are the littlest and most bounteous of all ocean turtles found on the planet, occupying warm waters of the Pacific, Atlantic and Indian seas. These turtles, alongside their cousin the Kemps ridley turtle, are best known for their special mass settling called Arribada, where a huge number of females meet up on a similar shoreline to lay eggs. In spite of the fact that found in wealth, their numbers have been declining in the course of recent years, and the species is perceived as Vulnerable by the IUCN Red rundown. Developing to around 2 feet long, and 50 kg in weight, the Olive ridley gets its name from its olive hued carapace, which is heart-molded and adjusted. Guys and females develop to a similar size; be that as it may, females have a marginally more adjusted carapace when contrasted with the male. They are carnivores, and feed principally on jellyfish, shrimp, snails, crabs, molluscs and an assortment of fish and their eggs. These turtles spend their whole lives in the sea, and move a huge number of kilometers amongst nourishing and mating grounds throughout multi year. Interestingly, females return to the very same beach from where they first hatched, to lay their eggs. During this phenomenal nesting, up to 600,000 and more females emerge from the waters, over a period of five to seven days, to lay eggs.  After about 45-65 days, the eggs begin to hatch, and these beaches are swamped with crawling Olive-ridley turtle babies, making their first trek towards the vast ocean.
