Juvenile green sea turtle Ronnie

Name: Ronnie

Species: Green

Date admitted: August 10, 2019

Stranding location: Trident Basin

Status: In treatment

Admission notes: This juvenile green sea turtle was brought to the Healing Center after being found by UCF in their population study. Upon arrival, this turtle was thin and dehydrated. This turtle is now pretty shy and currently only eating algae.



September 12, 2019: Ronnie continues to be a picky eater. This turtle came out this week for their monthly workup and did not gain the amount of weight that we were hoping. However, Ronnie did recently become fond of zucchini and bell peppers!
