pirate Video of dancing turtles

Hi

Wanna see a video of dancing turtles?

I filmed this at Sipadan east of Borneo in 2001:



DANCING TURTLES (Windows Mediaplayer)

Turtles

That's pretty niffty! Are turtles normally that easy to get close too. I've petted eels, had large stingrays follow me around and seals steal my catch but haven't had the pleasure of turtles in the buff.

I really think they had more on their mind than dancing.

There are hundreds of turtles in the waters around Sipadan - and they are very easy to get close to THERE (but not everywhere):

You're right. This male is almost 100 years old
