False crawl Edisto Beach, SC
A false crawl is when a loggerhead sea turtle (Caretta caretta) starts to dig a nest and then decides against it and returns to the sea. Often car headlights or lights from beachfront houses will confuse them and cause them to turn back. When a loggerhead does lay eggs in its nest, scientists will remove them until they are ready to hatch, and then return them to the exact marked-off spot where the nest was made.
