Did you know that the first sea turtles roamed Earth

More than 250 million years ago, the first sea turtle roamed the Earth. If you want to find out more about its journey, I recommend you visit The Mind Museum and watch "Simula", a 3D film on natural history made by Filipinos. It is showing at the museum's Nature's Hourglass.
