Stranded 5/29/2015

Mitch is a juvenile Atlantic green sea turtle. He was found by a member of the US coast guard. He has a very large wound on his plastron and carapace (top and bottom shell). Due to the shape of the wound, we believe it was most likely caused by a shark. Mitch’s wounds are severe and he is being monitored in our ICU where he is on antibiotics, fluids, and is taken to the Gladys Porter Zoo for laser treatments. Mitch also had a broken front flipper, which was set and bandaged.
