Sully. Admitted 6/27/2016. Weight: 59 lbs.
10/20/2016 Weight: 68 lbs!
Juvenile Loggerhead found swimming behind a rock ledge on Sullivan’s Island. Diagnosed with Debilitated Turtle Syndrome. Had poor bloodwork, was severely emaciated, and had been entangled in fishing line.
Treatments: Antibiotics, vitamins, clean tank water, nutritious food, and time.
(Sully was sleeping; the turtles like to put their heads in enclosed spaces for protection, that tube is there for that and is part of their enrichment!)
Aww sleep well Sully, we hope you’re getting better and will get back to your home in the ocean asap.
