Kaze is a juvenile Atlantic green sea turtle that was found stuck in the under water in the rocks at the Boca Chica jetties by one of our interns who was patrolling Boca Chica for nesting mamas. Kaze weighs about 6 lbs, is in good body condition, and has normal blood values. Kaze began eating immediately upon admission to our hospital! Kaze defecated a small piece of balloon on 6/5/17...many people that do balloon releases do not think about where their balloons might end up - like in a GI tract of a sea turtle. Fortunately Kaze is doing very well and will likely be released in by July!
