hawksbill
leatherback
loggerhead

Leatherback turtles are one of the deepest diving marine animals. In­di­vid­u­als have been recorded diving to depths as great as 1,280 meters (4,200 ft). Such depths are un­reach­able for turtles with hard shells, as these would have been crushed by the pres­sure.
