Male green sea turtle with considerable FP tumors. A female just a few yards away (and about the same size) appeared to be tumor free (see second photo). Both were hauled out on the beach.
Large green sea turtle hauled up on the beach. Considerable FP tumors observed externally.
Tracks on the beach near the subject indicated that other turtles hauled up recently in this same location (see photos).
No photo, sighting only. One owl seen in flight during daylight over sugar cane fields as our plane was taxiing on the runway after landing. First bird sighting of the trip.
Kahului Airport, Maui, Hawaii, USA.
Several green sea turtles with FP tumors. There were also several in the area without any tumors visible. The two largest females that I saw both had considerable tumor growth. Two smaller females and one large male in the same area had no tumor growth.
Beautiful, powder blue bird.
Lots of them at the B & B we were staying at.
