The Mouth Of A Leatherback Sea Turtle

Though it may look like something out of an alien movie, this is actually the mouth of a leatherback sea turtle. The largest turtle of its kind, the leatherback grows up to eight feet long and can weigh as much as 2,000 pounds. It’s also the only turtle without a hardshell and has dozens of demonic-looking papillae lining its mouth, esophagus, and gut in place of teeth.
