Green Sea Turtle Chelonia mydas Punta Cormorant, Floreana Island

This creature was born at the wrong time…in daylight. Nature has it designed for them to hatch under the protective cover of night. The mother turtle comes onto the beach, well out of tide’s reach, to dig a hole and lay her eggs. She then returns to the water. When the babies hatch they must journey to the sea to survive.
