Leatherback Turtle Returns to the Sea

The female leatherback sea turtle will scatter sand in all directions as it returns to the water, apparently another attempt to hide the nest's location.

However, the leatherback sea turtle's tread-like tracks cannot be camouflaged, an impressive testimony to the size of the world's largest sea turtle species.
