Hawksbill Turtle

https://faunafocus.com/home/october-2018/#jp-carousel-11243

Hawksbill turtles are preyed on by humans, sharks, crocodiles, large fish, and octopi, and their nests are robbed by dogs, raccoons, rats, and humans.

Hawksbill turtles, like all turtles, have a hard shell that discourages predators from trying to eat them.

Adult turtles are still consumed by humans, sharks, crocodiles, large fish, and octopi.
Hawksbill turtle nests are also commonly robbed by terrestrial predators such as dogs, raccoons, rats, and humans.
