      Oddly enough, I found a Turtle in front of my home one Morning and this was the first time I have ever seen one on the property. It was actually a very cool experience, we both startled each other so it was interesting for us both at the same time!! :D

      Here in Cyprus, two sea turtle species lay their eggs on the beaches and both species are listed as endangered. People actually do a lot here to protect these sea turtles.
