I just read Mark's turtle-ID post. I went to the recommended URL. I think, I too, have a green sea turtle. Am I right?

Correct, you have a Green Sea Turtle! You can clearly see the rounded head and the single pair of plates between the eyes.
Thank you again. I am getting better at sea-turtle identification, but I am still not confident.
