The Turtle Hospital. Rescue, Rehab, Release.

Another Green Patient: Eddie

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!
