Turtle Laying Eggs

Hola ! So, last night me, husband and 7 other guests were watching turtle laying eggs ! Here in Kerteh, Terengganu ! Well, for those who dosen't know or I bet the whole world knows that Terengganu is famous with turtle season ! Yup ! This is it ! Now is the turtle season till August ! So, for those who want to see turtle laying eggs and see baby turtles going back to the sea, please come here to Terengganu! Don't miss it !

We had dinner while waiting for the person in charge on the beach to let us know whether there is turtle coming to lay her eggs or not ! Yup ! We don't wait by the beach for the turtle to come ! Because it happen before where all the guest were waiting by the beach for hours but the turtle just don't come up ! It's just wasting time ! So, that's why now we only go there when the turtle already on the beach ! ;)

My handsome man ! Hikhik <3

We're having steamboat tonight ! :D

We had dinner at 8pm and waited for the turtle until 10:30pm. We almost give up you know ! We were about to go home when the driver said there is a turtle ready to lay her eggs ! So, he started to call all the guest who were all over the resort ! At last ! 10:45pm we departed from the resort to Kerteh near the oil refinery ! The journey took about half an hour from the resort by van !

We saw eggs ! We were so lucky because we just got there for 5 minutes and the turtle already start to lay her eggs ! According to the expert, normally they have to wait for an hour for the turtle to lay her eggs ! :D there were about 120 eggs altogether ! Turtles can carry almost 400 eggs a year if I'm not mistaken and she will come up at least three times to the beach to lay her eggs ! :D

She is a green turtle and she's quite big for her species! She's been here before according to the expert because she already has a tag on her ! She even might be born here !

The expert told us that the turtle choose to lay her eggs at dirty beach because it makes her feel that the beach is natural and nobody "might be there" because nobody clean the beach !

Some people said that the turtle cried because she have to leave her eggs but it's alll wrong accoding to the expert ! They said the turtule need to cry because there is a lot of salt water in her eyes that make her can't see properly on the beach ! So, she need to cry to make her eyes clear !

We didn't wait till the turtle went back to the sea because it was quite late, so, we moved to the place where they keep the turtle eggs ! This is how they keep the eggs safe from monitor lizard, whild boar, monkey, and so on till the baby turtle come out safely !

This is how the hole for them to keep the turtle eggs look like ! To keep the eggs warm they need to put the eggs inside there till they all born !

So, that is some info from the turtle laying eggs ! I will go there again on July or August to see them release the baby turtle back to the sea ! Can't wait ! I hope i can name one of the baby turtle after me ! Hikhik
