Stranded 3/29/2013

Becky is a post hatchling hawksbill sea turtle. She was found stranded just north of County Access 6 on South Padre Island. She was very skinny and had small, superficial wounds on her lateral (side) scutes. The turtle also had several small barnacles and tiny chunks missing from her back flippers. Becky shares a tank with 4 other post-hatchling hawksbill sea turtles. She is recovering well from her injuries and she will be released when she grows to a bigger size!
