Hatchling Video!


A four-week old loggerhead hatchling, making a cameo appearance in the hatchling video below, recently had his flipper bandage removed. The little guy has not been able to be released yet because his broken humerus bone is still healing.

Check out our adorable green and loggerhead hatchlings in their rehab tanks by clicking here.  Be sure to note the frenzied behavior of the green hatchling versus the more laid back behavior typical of loggerhead hatchlings.

The green hatchling featured in this video is about 1-week old whereas the loggerhead is over 1-month old, still recovering from a broken flipper.
