Last week the science world was all a buzz about the recent discovery of a biofluorescent Hawksbill sea turtle in the Solomon Islands.  The first known biofluorescent reptile. Why and how the Hawksbill sea turtle gained the ability to biofluoresce is unknown at this point. Hawksbill sea turtles are a critically endangered species and little is known about them in general.
