Walrus

Arrival: 2/10/16

Species: Green

Weight: 16 lbs

Location:  Clearwater Beach, FL

Reason: Cold Stunned , FP, & Entanglement


BIO:¬†I was transferred from Clearwater Marine Aquarium. I was cold stunned. This usually means the water temperature was under 65 degrees, and I was floating. I was found entangled in fishing line around both front flippers as well. Once I’m feeling better I’ll start with surgeries to remove the tumors.


4/13/16 New Photo since my surgery. Getting closer to being tumor free.
