June 14: From Jan (Laguna Key Team Leader)
Tag team tagged #28 last night in Laguna Key gated community. June 14 Nest #B12 for us. 36″ crawl […clip…].Momma turtle did not come in very far from tide pool area to lay her nest. Thinking she was scarred by flash picture that was posted on facebook. Team members Debbie W., Deb K, Steve D., and Kathy A. all four uncovered eggs at the same time. The top egg was only an inch or so under the the sand, with 4-5 more eggs found within a dinner plate size area. The rest of the nest was only a couple inches down and very well packed in. This was a very small nest in diameter. Also, two broken eggs. Thoughts are she was spooked by [the] flash [photography] and didn’t finish the job of packing and covering her nest as normal. Great team work made this relocation quick. Also a couple of home owners and have contact information to keep in touch closer to hatching.
