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.
