Chelonia mydas agassisi
Taken in Sullivan Bay at Santiago Island. The most common species of sea turtle in the Galápagos. This one could have been hit by a boat, thus the white patch on its shell (as explained by our naturalist). The final picture is of a nest which was roped off to protect the eggs.
