Forests official who were called have confirmed that these turtles are Olive Ridley Turtles. The officials believe that the female turtles prefer to hatch their eggs to that same place where they were born, because they consider that place to be comfortable and safe for her and her kids. So that can also be the reason that the mother turtle came back to Versova Beach.
