Hurley Mac

Date Stranded: March 7, 2019
Date Released: October 27, 2019

Reason for Stranding

Shell Injury

Patient History

A volunteer found Hurley floating in the Laguna Madre with a heavy load of barnacles.

Patient Injuries

Severe inflammation occurred causing the keratin, the top colorful layer, to separate from the rest of the shell. The light gray color you see is exposed bone. Over time, the darker keratin layer will start to regenerate and the bone will no longer be exposed.
