Spikey

Stranded 7/9/2010

Spikey is a post-hatchling Kemp’s ridley sea turtle. He stranded with small chunks missing from all of his flippers, most likely he was attacked by a predator. Spikey recovered very quickly and is now currently swimming in a larger tank. His favorite hobbies are biting at his tank filter and chasing the thermometer around his tank when we do the morning temperature check.  He will be released in summer of 2013.

Released 6/26/2013
