Turkish Angora cats are known for their heterochromatic eyes.

Wildlife Native to Turkey

Turkey’s native wildlife includes over 80,000 species and subspecies from migratory birds to ancient species of lions to two almost extinct sea creatures.

Sea turtles spend most of their lives in the ocean, only returning to land to dig into beach sand to lay their eggs, after which they immediately head back out to the ocean.

Sea Turtle Nesting and Florida Beaches

The Atlantic coast is popular for sea turtles to make their nests, and Florida is a particularly favored place. There are some 70,000 sea turtle nests made annually along the Florida coastline, and most of them are made by loggerhead turtles.
