Hobcaw: Martha and Debbie paired up this morning and found a potential nest south of #6mm. They continued on to find a long Gimpy crawl with 6 digging attempts but no eggs deposited. Poor girl:(
Returning from the inlet, Martha located the egg chamber in the crawl at #6mm. Debbie was excited to observe the nest finding procedure and learned a lot from her instructor…good teamwork!

Our inquisitive WY friend, Jessica, is getting a great turtle education and also watched the HOB27 process. Afterwards, she headed down to Gimpy’s crawl and sent back this video. She was curious about how we know it is this particular turtle. She now understands about the missing right rear flipper and the imprint it leaves in her crawl.This hinders Gimpy’s ability to dig her chamber deep enough to deposit eggs.
