On Halloween morning, Cape Hatteras National Seashore biological technicians discovered a freshly dug green sea turtle nest almost a mile west of South Beach Road on Hatteras Island.
The nest will reach its hatch window of 50-55 days between December 20 and 25.
According to data on seaturtle.org, this nest is the latest laid sea turtle nest at the Seashore since at least 1997.
