    The growth of olive ridley lepidochelys olivacea in captivity has been studied from emergence to 47 months. The carapace length increased from 37 mm at the time of emergence to 528 mm in 47 month old turtle and the weight increased from 16.3 gm to 19.5 kg. The growth recorded here is higher than those reported by previous authors. Sex could not be differentiated externally even in 47 month old olive ridley.
