    Wow…just wow! Thanks for replying with the actual link to your article. What I would do for an experience like that! I’ll be sure to check out the company once I make it out that way. Thanks for the details & the mind altering experience you shared! :-D

    Oh my 100 eggs in 45 minutes? That is a one of a kind experience. I wish I could see turtles laying eggs as well.

    I’m looking forward to see more of your expeditions.

    Flopping around, making noise, drooling, and spitting sand. Hmm, that could be any typical drunken college kid. Are you sure you weren’t at a beach party?

      Hahaha…because we all know that’s how beach parties end up! ;-)

    I really envy you a lot! I’m also a traveler myself. In fact, I’ve seen some turtles in one island before but not as big as this one in Africa.

    OMG……..this is so cute. I’m in love with this creature. Even though it is huge I find it amazingly cute. I liked the video of the Leatherback laying eggs.

    Thanks for the video! I never had the chance to see turtle hatchings in Nicaragua!

      Hi Danielle! Watching all the babies erupt out of the sand and wiggle towards the sea is still on my list of things to do someday. :)

    I studided sea turtles in college studying abroad in costa rica, it is truly a site to see a turtle work so hard to lay her eggs. I know turtle watching is big tourist business, I just hope that the majority of them are respectful of the turtles like your guide was. Glad you enjoyed it and shared it.

      I bet working with the turtles on a regular basis is fun. Yes, we definately had a great guide with us.
