Birthing baby turtles
Now theres sumpin you don't see every damn day... UPDATED

“Have I got a photo opp for you.”
(it’s Ray)
“Yea, what’s her name?”
“No really, get over here, I got a big turtle laying eggs right now on my property!”

So we pack up some gear and zip right over there. We had a hatching here a few years ago and had turtle puppies scampering all over the place! We had left our lights on and it confused them. Once we turned out the lights, we could herd them to the water with a flashlight.

The ones that were really lost, stumbling around near the road, we put them in a bucket and gave them a free lift to the sea. But we never seen a mom digging her nest.

Pretty cool!

Come back in a little while. I’ll go find the photos of those puppies.

Found 'em.

Have gotten messages about the eggs safety. Ray, being the good expectant father that he is, is taking good measures so that the neighborhood raccoons, dogs (yea you Scurvy)and other eggs teefs don't get at the brood!
