Young Kemp’s ridley turtles may spend up to two years—until they are about 8 inches long—in beds of sargassum seaweed, where they can find food and refuge from predators. Temperatures of the sand where the turtles nest determine the sex of the turtle. If the sand’s temperature is below 85 degrees Fahrenheit, the hatchlings will be predominately male; sand temperatures above 85 degrees Fahrenheit produce predominately female hatchlings..
