Another green sea turtle with fibropapilloma tumors arrived at The Turtle Hospital on April 11th. Eddie was rescued in Sandy Key, found floating and covered in tumors and leeches. After a freshwater soak to get all the leeches and eggs off, Eddie was put into a tank with shallow water. He is still floating some, but hopefully Eddie will get an endoscopy soon to let us know what is causing the buoyancy!
