Encuentro con tortuga gigante en Culebra

Beautiful Leatherback Sea Turtle on Flamenco Beach www.culebrablog.com

While out for my morning run on Culebra today I came across a massive female leatherback sea turtle heading back to the ocean after she laid her eggs. They are an endangered species and typically lay their eggs at night, so it was certainly a rare sighting!!
