A dead female Green Turtle (Chelonia mydas) was found on Lipa Noi Beach on the island of Koh Samui, Surat Thani. The carcass was 57.4 centimetres wide, 65.2 centimetres long, and weighed approximately 15-20 kilograms. The broken carapace suggests that it was killed after being struck by a boat propellor.
