That is very rare on the coast of CA... Here is an article of one that washed up a few years ago in the Bay area. http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?

Extremely rare as they are tropical creatures. This most certainly calls for photos... post a location and the UHs might even take the pics for you.

Indeed, not common here but which beach did it wash up on? (They're probably not common on any beaches, since sea turtles are endangered, world-wide.)

We saw the turtle also. It was at Hendry's.

While not common, both green sea turtles and leatherbacks can be seen in the Channel Islands Marine Sanctuary.

It realized the personality of most people in SB, and died.

Actual sea turtle, or a released pet turtle? pictures, please!

I have seen sea turtles in our channel before...on 3 occasions.

May have washed down from a creek or river. Photo's would be beneficial. Try calling Peter Howarth of SB Marine Mammal Sanctuary.

Could be a desert turtle...
