The Hawksbill Sea Turtle is a small to medium-sized turtle and this species is characterised by rough, serrated edges of the shell, four pairs of costal scutes, two pairs of pre-frontal scales and its distinct overbite. The scutes of the carapace are often overlapping, resulting in the rough, serrated edges of the shell, however this characteristic is less pronounced with larger individuals.
