Additional Details:
Visitors to this beautiful island city may view these Giant turtles weighing from 150 to 350 pounds each. The kraals are built of concrete posts, properly spaced to prevent the turtles from escaping and to allow fresh sea water to circulate through them. Green Turtle Steak is a delicacy served in most Florida Key Restaurants. Green Turtle Soup is also made from the gelatinous meat found in the back and breast of the turtle
