Princess Lea

Adult female green turtle right profile, Lhaviyani Atoll, Maldives. Image

Turtle ID Code: GR141

Princess Lea isn’t just flying through space saving the universe from the grip of the imperium! She also can be often seen sleeping in her favourite spot on Kuredu Caves. Divers that have visited Kuredu over 20 years ago can recall seeing her sitting in her spot, an overhang at 6 m at the west end of Kuredu Caves. Our first official sighting of her dates back to the year 2010, which is one of our very first recordings in our data base. So Princess Lea has been around a long time and is definitely here to stay. Sometimes she does sit in other spots, and sometimes she glides through the water like a spaceship through the universe.
