The “poster child” for injured sea turtles, Montel has had everything happen to him. Monofilament entanglement resulted in amputation of his right front flipper. Shark attack bit off half of left front flipper leaving only half a front flipper remaining. Fibropapilloma and boat hit resulting in loss of one eye and indented shell.
