Juvenile green sea turtle

Name: Scallywag

Species: Green

Date admitted: May 8, 2019

Stranding location: Playalinda Beach

Status: In treatment

Admission notes: This juvenile green sea turtle was brought to the Healing Center from Playalinda Beach. Overall, this turtle looks awesome, with minimal epibiota and great body condition. We have a suspicion that this turtle may have internal parasites, but are waiting for fecals to confirm.

 

UPDATES

May 24, 2019: Scallywag has had one Caryospora-free fecal. Only two more to go!

May 17, 2019: Scallywag came back positive for Caryospora and received their first treatment. We will recheck in a week to see if we were able to get the protozoa under control!
