VIDEO DESCRIPTION:

A team of researchers studying twelve leatherback sea turtle nests in Oaxaca, Mexico has discovered that the baby turtles can communicate with each other from inside their eggshells to coordinate when they are ready to hatch. The authors of the study wrote: “Sound communication appears to be a more important facet of freshwater and marine turtle biology than previously imagined, particularly between laying of the eggs and hatching of the young during the reproductive season.”
