Today I went to the Alligator Farm in St. Augustine to see what was happening. I went late in the day hoping to catch some birds coming in to roost for the evening. Instead, I had the pleasure of watching one of their turtles dig a hole, lay eggs, and cover it up. There weren’t many people there. A few stopped to watch briefly, but then left. I stayed until the turtle almost covered the eggs. It was getting close to closing time by then anyway. In my excitement, I forgot to find out what kind of turtle it was. The first video below shows the turtle laying eggs and the second video shows her covering them.
