Small female covered in sand resting.
Observation was done during the 1st Colombian Scientific Expedition to the Seaflower Biosphere Reserve.
Found dead on shore.
I was walking along the beach and I found this specimen washed up on shore. It was definately deceased, it say pretty recently. I had never seen one this big, dead or alive. The lenght was about a foot and a half.
