Waking up!

i.JPG After 45 days.....ThumbnailsMeasuring

The baby turtles have a limited supply of energy that they have got from their egg yolk. They can keep flapping their little flippers for about 3 days pretty much continuously straight after reaching the surface. We try to release them as soon as possible so they can use their energy in the ocean rather than running around in the hatchery.
