Females will often return to the place they were born to lay their eggs. Even if it is thousands and thousands of kilometers, Sadly, there is only about 15,000 loggerhead turtles left swimming around these days, and are caught in fisherman's nets and being sold to collectors world wide.
Loggerhead turtles have fairly large shells. Although, the leather back has an even bigger shell, but it is much softer. Loggerheads have huge heads, on top of that they have huge, strong jaws, and a reddish-brown shell, also known as a carapace. Adult males can reach to almost a full meter (three feet). In shell length and weight, it reaches round about 113kg, but some with more than 450kg's has been found.
