Turtle Field School Discovers Special Terrapin


Diamondback Terrapin #130

Turtle Field School kicks off on Thursday afternoon with discovery of female Diamondback Terrapin #130.  We have been following this beautiful lady since June 1989.  She nests on Mass Audubon’s Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary’s Goose Pond Trail.  She lost her right rear limb prior to 2001.  So, nesting for #130 can be very challenging.  She sometimes leaves eggs on her right side uncovered.
