Reason for Stranding
Stranded at Boca Chica Beach with monofilament line coming out of mouth and braided line.
Bandit has fibropapillomatosis. This herpes virus causes tumors to grow and the fishing line was moderately entangled around her tumors.
Ways to help Bandit's Recovery
One of the three primary missions at Sea Turtle, Inc. is rehabilitation. We work hard to rescue and return every sea turtle back to the wild. Proceeds from this adoption will go directly to purchase needed medical supplies, veterinary exams, x-rays, food and general care for our rehab turtles.
