MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) - Officials say leatherback sea turtles, which are the world’s largest turtles, have appeared in South Carolina waters.

The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reported Tuesday that the state Department of Natural Resources is urging boaters to look out for the endangered reptiles. The department said in a Facebook post the turtles have been swimming near the shore following food sources like cannonball jellyfish.

Officials have asked people to report if they see any injured or dead sea turtles.
