Sea Turtle Returns to the Sea

If you've never seen a sea turtle return to the ocean after (hopefully) laying its eggs on our beach, you're in for a real treat. Most nestings take place at night, so the opportunity to get good video of a daytime trek to the ocean is rare. Ann Zscheile provided us with this video of a returning loggerhead (remember - this turtle weighs about 250 pounds) - watch carefully at the end, as there's some great turtle surfing action! To get the full effect, be sure your sound is turned on. Many thanks to Ann for sharing this.
