Description
Peter I took this 30 min ago....Your turn. The loggerhead mating season is from late March to early June. Little is known about courtship or mating habits of the loggerhead (or those of any other sea turtle, for that matter.
Adult females begin to nest as early as late April and they continue right up to early September. Nesting activity is at its peak in June and July. Average clutch size varies from 100 to 126 eggs. Loggerheads nest at night. Natural incubation periods range from 53-55 days.

This time table puts the hatchings at about ...now!
Bite size has hazards and mother nature makes up for it with large clutch numbers to increase the number of survivors. 10% are said to make it to adulthood.
After natural effects (The bite size problem) take 90% of the clutch the remaining 10%'s primary threat is the nets of the fishing industry and this has kept them on the endangered species list.
