Caption: leatherback sea turtle, Dermochelys coriacea, sometimes called the lute turtle or leathery turtle, is the largest of all living turtles and is the fourth-heaviest modern reptile behind three crocodilians. It is the only living species in the genus Dermochelys and family Dermochelyidae. It can easily be differentiated from other modern sea turtles by its lack of a bony shell, hence the name. Instead, its carapace is covered by skin and oily flesh. Mt Plaisir Estate is the only true Beach Hotel in Trinidad. Located on Grande Riviere Bay along the Caribbean Northeast Coast, it hosts one of the largest colonies of the endangered leatherback turtles, the biggest sea turtles which annually nest here by the thousands between March and August.
