The Turtle Hospital. Rescue, Rehab, Release.

Montel was brought to the hospital on April 6, 2001 with a number of problems. Half of Montel’s right front flipper was missing from a shark attack and the left front flipper was completely amputated from a previous injury. Montel has the Fibropapillomatosis virus, and this turtle suffered a boat hit to the head causing him to be blind in his right eye. Montel now makes his way around our main pool well enough that he just might be our most ornery turtle. Because of all the odds working against this turtle, Montel will never be released back into the wild.
