VIDEO: Loggerhead turtle lays eggs, heads back to sea

Posted: Updated:
SARASOTA (FOX 13) -

A local viewer captured an incredible nature moment on a Tampa Bay area beach.

Ann Lane sent us the video from Englewood Beach. It shows a loggerhead sea turtle coming ashore to lay her eggs this past weekend. You can see that just before sunrise it slowly but surely makes its way back to the ocean.

A female loggerhead can lay up to 125 eggs.

In 45 to 55 days all of those eggs will hatch and the hatchlings will race to the sea.
