TURTLE ARRIVES ALONG OSTIONAL BEACH SHORE IN HONDURAS TO LAY
THEIR EGGS. 
A Lepidochelys (olivacea) turtle digs her nest to lay eggs, along the shore
at Ostional Beach in Santa Cruz, 350 miles the north of the capital San
Jose, late November 3, 2003. More than 100 million eggs are laid by the
turtles during a five-day period. Residents of this small town on the
pacific coast collect up a small percentage of the eggs to sell at markets
throughout Costa Rica. Ostional is one of the few beaches in the world where
the turtles arrive in mass to lay their eggs. NO RIGHTS CLEARANCES OR PERMISSIONS ARE REQUIRED FOR THIS IMAGE PP03110013 REUTERS/Juan
