I think figures of marine turtles should be sculpted to match the species specific pattern of scutes which is important in identifying them. This one has four vertebral scutes instead of five (which it should have if it's meant to be a Loggerhead). Four is the vertebral scute count in Chelonia mydas, though. In this respect (and also regarding the pattern of scutes on the head) both the Papo Sea Turtle and Safari Ltd WS Sealife Loggerhead Turtle are better representatives of the species.
