soft-shell-turtleSomething new we found on January 2nd, 2010. The Soft Shell Turtle (Pelochelys cantorii) was found at the Hotspring Volcano at 17.40pm. We found together with Malaysian divers (Yunice Group). The turtle appears to be sleeping, covered with sand near a coral reef in 5 meters of depth. This is the first time have seen this rare animal but hope we get to see it again. Reallly… really…nice!!!
