Hatching Turtle (Swimming) #619

Hatching Turtle, Menagerie -  artwork by Emily Miller
A tiny sea turtle makes its way out of the egg, towards the open sea. Each turtle is unique, although there are three basic varieties: hatching from the egg, swimming (with no egg), and an albino white variant of the swimmer.

100 Turtles Project

100 uniquely sculpted ceramic and porcelain sea turtle hatchlings represent the 99% of hatchlings that are now born female at some major nesting sites around the world, due to rising sand temperatures during incubation. Out of these 100 turtles, only one is male, represented by the white / turquoise variant. 100 turtles is also approximately the size of a single nest. One in 100 hatchlings will survive to adulthood. For each 100-turtle nest, what are the chances that the one surviving adult turtle will be the single male hatchling?
