This big, beautiful leatherback turtle couldn’t resist saying hello to a group of boaties out on the water in Mangawhai Heads, near Auckland, in New Zealand’s North Island.

Pippa told Storyful: “I didn’t even know that turtles visited NZ waters, so was totally amazed!”

Leatherback turtles are listed by the International Union for Conservation of Nature as <a href="http://www.doc.govt.nz/nature/native-animals/marine-fish-and-reptiles/sea-turtles/" target="_blank">critically endangered</a>.
