Loggerhead or Hawksbill

Images: 

Was swimming with this critter in February (St. John USVI) and only now am getting around to checking and filing away my pictures.  Looking at Marine Reptiles in "Reef Fish", I still can't decide.

Any suggestions??

Thanks.. jay

 

.. The profile photo is the clue.  tks

Hawksbill

I can tell by the beak on that one that it is a hawksbill.

Thanks...

I was trying to figure it out based on the plate structure.. Should have looked at profle.

I 'll try to add an additonal photo for the future..
