Everyone know what happens to sea turtle hatchlings, with the race to the ocean, but what happens with tortoise hatchlings? I don't think I've ever even seen a tortoise hatchling, though I've seen billions of sea turtle hatchlings. Why isn't there more tortoise coverage? Outrageous. I had a dream last night with lots of sea turtle hatchlings in it, and then at one point, a lone grown tortoise substituting for a turtle hatchling. What happens with tortoise hatchlings?
