First leatherback sea turtle hatchling to emerge & escape hungry vultures
While on their way to Paria Falls on the northern coast of Trinidad, an island in the southern Caribbean, these people came across this little guy rushing to the water. At first they thought how cute but only after they returned from the falls they realized why he was in a hurry. Black vultures and crabs prey on the newly hatched leatherback babies! Luckily this little squirt was able to make it into the ocean.
