Debbie

Stranded: 01/28/2017

 

Atlantic green Debbie was found in the surf 2 miles past access 6. It was cold that day so she did appear a little 'stunned.' She was very lethargic and covered in algae, had a moderate load of FP tumors and was slightly emaciated. Debbie did not show any interest in food so she was tube feed her for about a week. When she finally graduated to a display tank, she began eating on her own right away.cropped debbie copy

February 22 Update:  Debbie had surgery today and is now tumor free!!! Pictured right is Debbie after surgery. She is sporting a a compression "scarf"  as she had a tumor removed from her chin.
