Low temperatures gave local sea life a shell shock.

Three green turtles washed up on national seashore Saturday morning. Because reptiles are cold-blooded, the frigid water slows them down and they can't move.

Rangers from Texas Parks and Wildlife found the turtles and took them in for warmth and rehabilitation.
