A 1,600-pound leatherback turtle crawled onto the beach on Tybee Island on Thursday, The Savannah Morning News reported.
The massive turtle was found making its way back to the water at dawn. It was unclear whether the turtle had laid eggs, the newspaper said.
Tybee's last known leatherback nest was found more than 10 years ago, in 2004, the newspaper said.

If you have photos you would like to submit for a future gallery, email your photos to audience engagement editor Jeff Kidd at email@example.com.
