The Loggerhead Turtles are beginning to show up on Ambergris for the start of mating season.
They migrate around the Atlantic for thousands of miles and return each year to where they were born to mate. Living up to 75 years some of the turtles are old friends of the local divers.





That hook on his flipper is for latching onto the females shell during mating.
He's not into the missionary position.

I was told that the females were the ones without a tail. She usually had all kinds of scratched on the top of her shell from the males 'hook.' Then one day Billy told me about the males "those are not tails!"

I was once complaining because a tourist diver had grabbed a turtle and was using the "tail" to steer the turtle. My anger was slightly assuaged when the dm with a twinkle in his eye said the same as Billy.

You can see his loving embrace with the hook.
