A sub adult Loggerhead Sea Turtle was found floating in the Ocean Reef area of Key Largo. The turtle was transported to the Turtle Hospital and upon having an incoming X-ray performed, the problem became apparent. The digestive tract is impacted, the bloated intestines clearly showing on the X-ray image . In addition to antibiotics and vitamins, laxatives will also be administered.
