The Turtle Hospital. Rescue, Rehab, Release.


Transferred from Sea World in February of 2000, Tam, a Green sea turtle, suffered a boat hit. The boat hit left Tam as a permanent floater, a “bubble-butt”, and she now has a lead weight fiberglassed to her carapace. She now swims effortlessly in our 100,000-gallon pool and loves to eat… maybe a little too much as she is slightly overweight! Oh, Tam.

UPDATE 09/01/2010

Tam is enjoying her new home at The Underwater Adventures Aquarium!
