I spotted this reptile, on the beach Mia Lakkos, Soullaroi, Paliki, Cephalonia island, Greece. After 2 years of trying to watch a caretta caretta hatchling, finally this year I was lucky enough to see at least one baby longerhead turtle , with the help of specialized Archelon volunteeers, taking it's first dive!

Congrats Christos, your wonderful series has earned you Spotting of the Day! A newly hatched loggerhead sea turtle makes its perilous first journey to the ocean - It's estimated that only one in a hundred hatchings survive their first few days and they are at their most vulnerable during their passage across the sand.
