Turtle love

Whilst bathing in the Sun yesterday with Katy and Dan, Dan noticed something rather odd happening a little further down the beach. It turned out to be three Turtles getting busy, we waded out and stood right next to them and perved at this amazingly strrange courtship, to be honest it wasn't as beautiful as it sounds, it was a full on gang rape. The two Males were harassing the poor Female with one underneath to push her up and the other on top, they even swapped over so they could both get their end away. I had heard that when turtles mate it's pretty brutal but it had to be seen to be believed.

I swear at one point the Female looked at us and you could see it in her eyes that she wanted help and in any other circumstances i would have dived right in to help a maiden in distress but i was to busy filming the whole sordid affair to split them up, plus i think some eco warriors would be upset about that i've probably gained a hate squad for what i did to the humpback.

Unfortunately i only had my stills camera so the quality isn't amazing but it was an experience i won't forget in a hurry.
