A leatherback encountered nesting on May 19, at 2:15 am. Curved shell length 146 cm, curved shell width 135 cm. Esi must always know where she's going because the pink spot on her head was shaped like an arrow pointing forward. There was mud all over her carapace indicating she went through the mud banck to get to shore. Boy, was she determined to nest! Her left front flipper was missing large sections, but she had no trouble choosing a nest site that was very high on the beach and near alot of drift wood.
