SeaWorld building new exhibit for its baby turtles

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - All week, SeaWorld has been teasing us about the new exhibit it's planning. Now it's time to reveal the big project.

It started months ago when keepers introduced a male green sea turtle to the females living at Shipwreck Beach.

Soon the sand was stirred up, a sign that eggs had been laid. The surprise was how many babies hatched -- 82 in three different batches. Now they're getting a home of their own.

In this News 8 video story, SeaWorld Assistant Curator Tim Downing tells us more.
