Meet Kali, the latest visitor to the LMC. She is the 2nd largest turtle we have ever had here.
She is 314 pounds of very mad green turtle. She came in because of a small injury above the eye and another on the right front flipper.
Dr. Mettee stitched up the flipper this morning – you have never seen a faster sewing job – Kali is not exactly patient. The eye injury is small and will remain untreated. It is nesting season for greens and Kali shows fairly recent mating scars. We are certain that Kali is gravid and needs to nest sometime soon. So we are just holding her for 48 hours of observation to make sure she is okay. The plan is to release her Thursday at around 11:30 or 12. We are getting her back out as quickly as possible because of those eggs.
So, sorry about the short notice but if you can get here before then – it is worth the trip!
