Honu Oni Pa’a is the Hawaiian name that means Turtle Steadfast. The Green Sea Turtle has survived from the beginning of time as a non-aggressive vegetarian. Once he has found a place where he feels secure, you can usually come back years later and find the same turtle in the same place. They know from hundreds of thousands of years of evolution that they are shark food; so at night, when the sharks feed, they tuck themselves into their chosen rock, cave, or niche of some kind, where they feel safe and wait for morning light to feed on the algae.
