Turtle update

Remember the post in June about the Mamma Turtles making their nest?   We have had it taped off all this time, hoping they did not get trampled by our guests.

And as of today, we see no evidence that the baby turtles hatched yet:  Not shells or tiny prints or disturbed gravel.  Gestation is supposed to be 69-90 days and we are beyond that.  We;ll keep an eye out for a few more weeks.   Seems like last time we saw babies it was in November so maybe it takes our turtles longer.
