Description: Another low (neap) tide surprise. Following huge swells this little turtle was washed up onto the beach. Carapace from front to tail end about 7cm. No nothches or tags noticed. One can only wonder where this tiny creature hatched, northern KZN or Maputaland, presumably. Any idea of its age?
