Teeny, Tiny Rescued Sea Turtles Ready to Check Out of Beach 'Hotel'

Last Wednesday the newborns left their nest and were hammered by rip currents as they tried to make their way into the water for food – thankfully the Cape Canaveral, Fla., park's department stepped in to help and put them in the caring hands of the experts at SeaWorld Orlando. Every newborn sea turtle's mission is to make their way to the seaweed line for food, so these little guys have been bursting with energy since their arrival last Thursday. "They're like in a trance. They're genetically programmed to swim, swim, swim, swim, swim," says Albert. "So when we got them, we couldn't keep them still for one second." Here's hoping Mother Nature lets these guys get back to the beach soon!
