Little Trucker is a post-hatchling Kemp’s ridley. He was found washed up in Sargassum seaweed in Isla Blanca Park. He is missing a back flipper, possibly due to a predator attack. He is currently in ICU being treated with fluids and antibiotics for his injury.

April 2014 Update: Little Trucker has been moved to rehabilitation tank 17 so he can have more space to grow!
