Another Leatherback Sea Turtle Lays Eggs on Phang Nga Beach

Phang Nga –

Another leatherback sea turtle laid eggs on a beach in Phang Nga.

The Khao Lampi-Hat Thai Mueang National Park staffers told the Phuket Express that they found a trace of a leatherback mother lying eggs on a beach in the national park area this week.

The nest is near the national park center. The area is not affected by seawater, poor weather, other animals or humans. Those eggs were not removed from the nest.

It is believed that the baby sea turtles will hatch within 55 days. The mother sea turtle traces were cleaned up to prevent anyone from stealing those eggs.
