Besides, do sea turtles always hatch at night?
Sea turtles hatch throughout the year but mostly in summer. After hatching, the young turtles may take 3 to 7 days to dig their way to the surface. Hatchlings usually wait until night to emerge from the nest. Emerging at night reduces exposure to daytime predators.
Similarly, what time do sea turtles come out at night? In turtle season Mexico, adult turtles will only lay their eggs in the protection of the night, usually from about 11 pm until dawn. The best time to try to see them is as late as you can stay awake.
Regarding this, how long do sea turtle eggs take to hatch?
about 45-55 days
