Earlier this year, the Daily Star reported that a five-stone sea turtle washed up dead on a beach in the US.

The animal had a “whole ecosystem” living on its shell, according to marine life experts.

Officials from the state's Seaside Aquarium shared on the centre's Facebook page that the endangered reptile had been found at "the south end of Manzanita beach".

Subsequent analysis of the deceased animal – confirmed as being a loggerhead sea turtle – showed that a "whole ecosystem" had been "travelling with it", according to the aquarium.

Amongst those that had been hitching a ride in the ocean on the turtle were live goose barnacles, skeleton shrimp and sea slugs.

According to the aquarium officials, the loggerhead sea turtle "can be found worldwide and has nine distinct populations".

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration report that one of the biggest threats to the loggerheads' survival from extinction is marine debris such as plastic which, when submerged in the ocean, gives off the same scent as their prey.

Loggerheads can, however, live up to 80 years of age if they avoid such perils.
