Jesse James

Jesse-James

Stranded 4/6/2014

Jesse James is a juvenile Atlantic green sea turtle. He was found stranded on Boca Chica Beach near the jetties. Jesse is missing a front left flipper, however, the injury is old and already healed. He has no previous tags which means he obtained this injury in the wild and it healed without the help of a veterinarian! It is amazing how hearty these turtles can be! He is currently in ICU and being treated with antibiotics.

4/24/14 update: Jesse has made a very quick recovery and is already eating on his own. He was moved to rehab tank #4 today! He will most likely be released within one month!
