Description

Tortuga Prieta.
la foto fue tomada en Canún, QuintanaRoo. en vacaciones del 2014. Aproximadamente a las 4 am. en la playa.
Era aproximadamente de 1m.
Era de color verde obscuro con manchas de color cafe, caparazon duro y muy fuerte.
Estaba enterrando sus huevos en la playa cuando la encontramos y los cuidadores de la zona los pusieron en cautiberio pues las personas visitantes llegan a llevarselos cosa que va contra su libertad.
