"Therefore, if these animals, people need to tell the nature protection organizations. Also, when you see their spawning needs careful protection, not exploitation of human eggs for them to maintain" Professor Wrap noted.
According to Professor Le Nguyen Break (lecturer of Biology, University of Hanoi), turtles were caught by fishermen in Nghe An is a species of leatherback turtles, Dermochelys coriacea scientific name. The back of the turtle skin is covered with smooth skin, 7 molding runs along the back with white spots.
