description: Sea turtles lay their eggs in only a few places, always the same beaches. The female turtles struggle up the beach to a place above the high water mark. There they dig a shallow pit with their fore flippers, and lie in it. The hind flippers are then used to dig a deeper pit, into which the eggs are dropped. The number of eggs varies but the usual amount is around 100.
