Rare footage captures group of usually highly solitary sea turtles in Florida

Rare footage captures a group of usually highly solitary sea turtles swimming together during mating season. The group of six green sea turtles - known as a bale - were spotted just off Juno Beach in Palm Beach County, Florida, USA last Saturday (17/07). Sea turtles are generally solitary creatures and remain submerged for much of the time they are at sea. Paul Dabill, 46, owns a restaurant nearby and spotted the sea turtles while flying his drone out over the sea. Paul, from Jupiter, Florida said: "There are so many green turtles off Juno Beach lately. "It only takes a few minutes to see more than a dozen each time I fly the drone. "They're very common this time of year as it's mating season."
