Montse Grillo COEXISTENCE Cuando el mar esta “tortuguero” (palabra del poeta: E. Acevedo) Podemos encontrar la Caretta Carreta, comúnmente llamada “tortuga boba”. Sube a superficie en busca de rayos de sol para calentarse, lo que a su vez se vuelve en su contra cuando intenta sumergirse ya que expande unos gases que le dificultan sus propósitos de descender por unos pocos minutos. En ocasiones esta tortuga es acompañada por peces pilotos (Naucrates ductor) cuya finalidad es tratar de alimentarse de sus parásitos y restos de comida. When the sea is 'turtled', As my friend and poet E. Acevedo says, We can find a lot of caretta caretta sunbathing on the surface. sometimes another surface fishes take benefit of this pleasant moment as pilot fish.this partner is not interested in the sun or in the turtle, they just look for food, the parasites that live in the turtle.
