The critically endangered Hawaiian Hawksbill turtle, or Honu ‘Ea, can be recognized by its curved beak and the scalloped edges on its shell. Hawaiians used the shell for fish hooks, jewelry and other ornamentation. The bones were used as tools, the eggs as food. These na honu are mentioned in the Kumulipo, the Hawaiian creation chant, and are important to some Hawaiians who consider the honu their aumakua, or family god.
