A Loggerhead sea turtle, now named Anoosh, was found floating near John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park by park manager Pat Wells. Upon examination, it was found that Anoosh is suffering from an intestinal impaction and a body cavity infection. She will receive Metamucil and mineral oil for the impaction and antibiotics should take care of the infection.
Anoosh is very alert and active. She’s eating well and is expected to make a full recovery. We expect to be sending her home in a matter of weeks.
