Found this young green turtle dead on the beach. The left side of the carapace had a massive amount of damage but no teeth or propeller marks that I could tell. Could have been a boat strike but none of the bones were cracked.
pity..very badly battered..
Poor thing I hope he lives in peace
What a pity :(
Yeah not sure how it died or how it got the large hole in its side. poor thing
Poor thing. They do fall prey to great white sharks, but more likely it starved as a result of the decimated sea grass beds caused by last year's cyclones.
