Bubbles, an adult male Loggerhead, was rescued from Tavernier Creek, Florida on July 7 2002. He was hit by a boat, resulting in spinal cord damage and paralysis of his rear flippers. He is missing his front left flipper due to an entanglement. With just one functioning flipper, Bubbles defies the odds. He spends his days resting at the bottom of the main pool and never misses a meal.
The Turtle Hospital will be Bubbles’ permanent home as his impairments are such that he would be at a distinct disadvantage in the wild. However, living the laid-back life here in the main pool is not so bad after all!
