The park said they dig into a turtle nest about three to five days after it begins showing “signs of a major emergence.” This helps determine the nest’s success, which depends on how many eggs hatch. They also look for live hatchlings who didn’t make it to sea.
The two-headed loggerhead sea turtle was one of three live babies found in a nest.
Once the group snapped some photos, all three turtles were released into the ocean.
It is critical for humans to not disturb the nest, which can place the baby turtles’ survival at risk. When a turtle nest is disturbed, the hatchlings have a 25% or less chance of surviving, according to Sea World.
