New Turtles?

Last night I was talking with Andre.  We looked at the beach and noticed a police truck and several people gathered.  We decided to be the nosy neighbors and see what was going on.

Turns out, they were building a bamboo shelter.  Upon questioning, they told us they were building a barrier to keep the turtles safe.  So, I looked in it and realized there were no turtles in there.  It then dawned on me that this is where a turtle had laid its eggs.  A man had pictures of the turtle and the eggs on his phone.  I am going to try and find him and see if I can get a copy of the pictures.

The shelter is very near the road.

The locals were proud of the turtle and the shelter that they built for the eggs.

I assume the police provided the sticker that is on the inside.

The turtle laid the eggs on May 27th 2013.  They stated it takes about 40-45 days for the turtles to hatch.

I will keep up on this and try to bet there when the turtles break free.

Hopefully I will be able to capture pictures and video of the turtles and be able to witness this beautiful moment in nature.san

 

Figuring it out…  1 hatch at a time.

  1. Thanks for sharing David, at high tide we have no beach up this way so will probably not ever see this except through your photos and videos.

    • I have always thought it would be a great site to see. I think it will be a fantastic photographic subject. I am more excited about this than I expected I would be. Shhh… location is secret… for now… I will give you a call when it is happening. I might need some help keeping the watch waiting for it to happen.
