Notes:
This egg came from a female A. ferox that was struck and killed by a car on the nearby road. The corpse of that turtle was too far gone to recognize at the time, but our guide had seen it on previous days and noted that it was gravid. This is one of the eggs picked apart by buzzards or other wildlife.
