A carcass of a Sea Turtle, apparently found in San Fernando. This is a different carcass from the Hawksbill Turtle (Eretmochelys imbricata) found at Barangay Canaoay. The photos of this badly decomposing carcass don’t show the head very clearly, but the edge of the carapace does not look serrated, nor do the scutes appear to be overlapping, suggesting that this was a Green Turtle (Chelonia mydas).
