Shelldon

Stranded 2/23/2014

Shelldon is a juvenile Atlantic green. He was found 10 miles north of County Access 6. He was completely covered with algae and had a large crack on his shell, possibly from a boat strike. The wound was bleeding slightly when he arrived. He is currently bandaged and is being evaluated by our veterinary staff. He is currently in the ICU.

April 2014 Update: Shelldon is still in ICU but his shell is continuing to heal. It will be a long road for him but we are optimistic for his recovery!

June 2014 Update: Shelldon was been moved to a rehabilitation tank outsid!
