barracudaBarracuda is one of three cold stunned sea turtles that we could not release. She was found stranded on the beach in Barracuda Cove on Boca Chica Beach.  She is an Atlantic green, weighing in at 8.5 pounds. Barracuda is being treated with antibiotics, Vitamin B and fluids. Se is currently swimming with Cole, who weighs around 95 pounds. We tried putting her with sea turtles her size, but she was a little aggressive. Looks like her name has a double meaning!!! Will get you a picture soon!!!!

Februrary 14 Update: Barracuda is eating well and gaining weight, up to 9.9 pounds! Picture is from 1-29.
