90 Metres above - A Flatback Turtle preparing a nest to lay eggs in Roebuck Bay Broome. The sun is setting & on the horizon, perfect light for photography, great colours & an amazing natural sight.
A bit of net research tells me, “The number of eggs in a flatback sea turtles' clutch are fewer than other sea turtles. They will have an average of 50 eggs laid each time in a clutch, while other sea turtles may lay up to 100-150 eggs in a clutch. The eggs are about 55mm long within these clutches. The sex of the flatback turtle hatchling is determined by the temperature of the sand that the egg is in. If the temperature is below 29 °C then the hatchling will be a male, and if the temperature is above this 29 °C it will be female.”
