Turtle ID Code: HK3289
Brownie is our most commonly sighted turtle on West Mukunudu reef. She is a juvenile hawksbill turtle with very distinctive scales on her face – which make it easy to recognise her. Brownie is a very chilled out turtle. She is happy to stick around and allow us all to watch her in her natural environment, gorging on sea sponges. We spot her frequently with her best friend Rosie. They seem to share a special bond with each other appear to be a similar age.
