The fact the person is holding it means it's going to die. Turtles hatch at night so they can follow the moon. Gulls, other birds, fish, raccoons, and crabs all eat baby turtles as they try to reach the ocean. This turtle might not make it and has been left by its siblings. Only about twelve turtles survive if it's the first group the mother has laid, out of around one hundred eggs, if they're lucky.<<<< well that's depressing
