So lookie here - can you tell what these are?

How about this?


Little leatherback turtle-lettes, on Turtle Beach, no less!

Look how they blend in, they'd be easy to miss!

Four different turtle types lay eggs on the beaches here year-round, although October is usually the latest for munchkins popping up from the sand. The St. Kitts Sea Turtle Monitoring Network was out there as soon as they heard and made sure that all the hatchlings got out ok.

Swim little turtles! Swim!!  Michael saw tracks for a large leatherback on Sandy Bank as well, so in a few weeks he'll have to look out for tiny flailing flippers emerging from the sand. Careful where you step!
