Peanut

Stranded 11/14/2014

Peanut is a juvenile Atlantic green sea turtle. She originally stranded during a cold front in November. When brought in, she was in a deep state of shock and could not be woken up. It was uncertain if she would survive. After three days of heat therapy, she eventually began to regain strength and move around. She has several large scrapes on her carapace and plastron (top and bottom parts of the shell), possibly due to a predator attack. She is being treated in our ICU.
December update: Peanut is eating well and has been moved to Rehabilitation Tank 1. She will be released in Spring of 2015.
