Olive Ridley Turtles: Order of Operations II

Olive Ridley Turtles: Order of Operations II


Olive ridley sea turtles are very amazing animals, so here are some facts: 1) some travel hundreds of miles to return to the same spot they were born to lay their eggs, 2) their grey heart-shaped shell from birth turns olive green once they reach adulthood—it’s also how they get their name—, and 3) they prefer warmer oceans. Less of a fact, they’re very good at the order of operations.
