My heart is so full ❤️ So incredible to see the leatherback turtles 🐢 nest under the moonlight at #GrandeRiveria the second largest nesting site in the world! The leatherback turtles lay about 80 eggs and the temperature of the sand determines the sex of each turtle. At adulthood, they weight up to 1200lbs and 7ft long. These turtles are the largest, fastest, and deepest diving sea turtles. However, only one out of a thousand of these little nuggets make it to adulthood due to human activity. Their diet mainly consists of jellyfish and mistaken plastic bags which is causing the decline of their species. Use reusable bags people!
