Phang Nga –

In total, 73 sea turtle eggs were found on a beach in Phang Nga this morning (March 25th).

The Khao Lampi–Hat Thai Mueang National Park reports at 6:00 A.M. this morning they found the nest of a sea turtle with 73 eggs buried. All of them are fertile eggs.

The mother sea turtle returned back into the sea after laying eggs. Her body length is 100 centimeters long and 57 centimeters wide.

The eggs have been relocated to a safe area nearby due to the concern of damage from weather.

It is believed that the baby sea turtles will be hatched within 60 days. This is the fifth nest of sea turtle eggs found on beaches in the area of the Khao Lampi–Hat Thai Mueang National Park this year.
