It had to happen.

Being softened up for the sell.

The snake oil salesman.

Turtles.

Five years old and ready for release.

A rare Albino.We were told one in ten thousand.

Turtles are endangered by natural predators,loss of habitat and fishing nets. We visited a small hatchery on the way to Galle that does its very best.

Eggs, which are like punctured ping pong balls.

Three days old.

Sri Lanka days 1 and 2.

After a longish flight we arrive in Colombo in the early hours. I am traveling here with Caroline and Tom and Anna for three weeks.
