This video of sea turtles hatching will be the best thing you see all day

When Rick Bryant went for a walk on the beach he wasn’t expecting anything too crazy.  But then he saw the sand moving, and soon there were baby turtles hatching and climbing out of the sand.  They began their descent to the ocean, and Rick captured it all.

Rick and his buddies’ narration makes it all the better, highlights including “does the light mean it’s recording?” and “SWIM! SWIM!”

His description under the video stated, “This is one of the coolest things I have ever seen…” and I can’t say that I disagree.

They’re also critically endangered, so it’s best to watch these creatures from afar and respect their habitat.
