Loggerhead turtle hatchlings follow light of casinos to Biloxi harbor

Part of a clutch of loggerhead turtle hatchlings followed the wrong light overnight and ended up in the Biloxi Small Craft Harbor on Thursday. "Most of these eggs hatch at night, and they follow the moon," Moby Solangi, director of the Institute for Marine Mammal Studies said. "In this case however, "they followed the lights of the casino and it led them into the harbor."
