Playing hide & seek for a fortnight, the Olive Ridleys have started laying eggs in Odisha. Can’t disclose their location for safety. Nature at its best🙏🏼🙏🏼 pic.twitter.com/BJpuSEDGl7
The 18-second clip shows turtles shuffling through the sand for Arribada, a common nesting phenomenon among Olive Ridley turtles. The turtles are seen searching around the beach for the right spot to lay eggs. Another video posted by Nanda shows turtles laying the eggs and covering them.
