We’re excited to introduce our newest group of turtle heros! The Neiman family was able to scoop out a 12 lbs Green sea turtle yesterday evening right off their dock in Summerland Key. On vacation from Tampa Bay, this big family did an awesome job looking out for young “Kobit”! Kobit was entangled in fishing line and has very large Fibropapilloma tumors.
The kids in the group took the first letter of each of their names and combined them to create the turtle’s new name. Kobit is already untangled and feasting on lettuce and squid bits. On July 1st, Kobit had an endoscopic procedure completed by Dr. Mader to inspect for internal tumors. Luckily, Kobit looks perfectly healthy on the inside and in a week or two when Kobit is stronger, we will be able to remove all of his tumors! Thanks Neiman family!!!
