MOTHER TURTLE LAYS 209 EGGS-SEE YOU TUBE VIDEO ABOVE

I am so amazed with how the mother turtle comes to land , lays her eggs and then returns back to the ocean.  The interesting thing, the mother turtle comes to the same shore to lay her eggs year after year.
Her eggs  later hatches into baby turtles.  The baby turtles find their way home back to the ocean.  The male turtle does not return to shore, but the female returns to the same shore where she was born after more than twenty years in the sea.  She waits until nightime, when the tide is high to come to land.  She digs a hole for her body and a very deep chamber for her eggs.
