A leatherback encountered nesting on May 19, at 1:22 am. Curved shell length 156 cm, curved shell width 120 cm. She was not as gentle with her eggs as some of the other turtles, in fact, she was a bit rough. Researchers found scars on her carapace and right front flippers indicating that she had a bad encounter with an object in the ocean. The pink spot on her head looked alot like a jelly fish and she had an additional pink spot on her nose.
