Name: Michelin

Species: Green

Date admitted: January 28, 2019

Stranding location: Cape Canaveral

Status: In treatment

Admission notes: This turtle arrived on January 28 from Cape Canaveral. Though there was no obvious indication of stranding, Michelin came in with a heavy barnacle load. Overall, the turtle is in good body condition and we hope to have their blood and fecal results soon!

 

UPDATES

February 13, 2019: Michelin has been living up to their namesake and continues to be a great little eater!

February 6, 2019: Michelin is eating and utilizing their enrichment devices well. We were recently able to clean off the majority of barnacles on their carpace, and those areas of the carapace are healing well.
