Question
Please give me some information regarding green turtles which are pet& do they require exposure to sunlight,,?

Answer
Hi Rajesh,

Are you wanting information about green sea turtles? They cannot be kept as pets and are an endangered species (they are protected and are illegal to own). Here is more information that I hope is helpful:

If you happen to see sea turtle eggs, hatchings, or adults, do not disturb them.

Let me know if you have further questions.

Have a great week,
Stacie
