Caption

Loggerhead turtle (Caretta caretta) laying eggs in a body pit she has dug on a sandy beach. Loggerheads can lay up to 70 eggs, which will be covered over with sand and left to incubate. The eggs hatch after approximately 80 days. The hatchlings dig their way to the surface and then head for the sea. Photographed in Florida, USA.
