On Monday morning, one sea turtle found herself stuck between some sand and a hard place on the Blowing Rocks Preserve beach in area in Florida.
Turtle nesting season, which usually begins around early March and continues into late October, is currently in full swing in southern Florida. During this period, the shores of many beaches become a temporary home to female loggerheads, green turtles, leatherbacks, hawksbills and the endangered Kemp's ridley, who crawl and dig in sand in order to lay their eggs.
For one female loggerhead turtle, her journey onshore became more complicated than she probably anticipated. In the midst of crawling back to the sea, the turtle accidentally flipped herself upside down, becoming trapped between two rocks.
