Date Stranded: October 13, 2021

Reason for Stranding


Patient History

– Re-stranded at mile marker 5

Patient Injuries

A nice layer of algae on her carapace when she re-stranded on Tuesday, which could be an indicator that she was floating/buoyant in the wild. She has been resting comfortably on the bottom of her isolation tank the last two days, so there are no signs of her having buoyancy issues right now.

Patient Treatments

Planning on taking her in for a CT scan in the upcoming weeks to see if something is going on internally that we just can’t see on x-rays that will point us in some direction as to why she re-stranded. She has been eating great.
