Turtle Eggs

Itlog ng Pawikan (turtle eggs) are a delicacy in Sulu where they are dug from the sand of the seashore where the mother turtle lays them.

It is believed that turtles cry with loneliness at finding their nests robbed.

The proper way to eat turtle eggs is boiled.

A small hole is knocked off one end of the soft-shelled pingpong ball-sized egg and the delicious, slightly gritty yolk is sucked out.
