Notes

Lifer. Sorry for the poor voucher - I was filming as I was snorkeling at this particular spring, and right as I went to stop filming, this Loggerhead Musk Turtle swam into view. When I realized it was there, I struggled to keep up with it while trying to turn my camera back on and take a picture, but to no avail. It hid from me in the grass, and I had to use a still from the end of my video for a voucher.
