Some sea creatures on land

Many of the turtles we saw were underwater but some were on land. I was swimming among them several times. There is a small creature on this turtle. I wonder if a small person could hitch a ride (forbidden of course). In another post I will have some tortoises. We did see Lonesome George - the last in his line, but he was in a dark spot under a tree so I didn't take a picture.

On one of the islands we saw a whale spine. Apparently an accidently beached whale was discovered and they moved the skeleton to a readily visible spot. It certainly makes it clear that they are mammals. The discs are pretty interesting as well.
