Meet Pearl

August 10, 2006

This is Pearl, the newest addition to our crew. So far the symptoms are typical of the “lethargic loggerheads” we frequently see in the winter. Emaciated, anemic, dehydrated and covered in barnacles. X-rays and blood tests are pending but so far nothing seems really dramatically outstanding with this turtle. She is hungry and was eating squid about five minutes after being placed in a tank. She’s got some energy and some spunk to her, so things look good for her at this point.
