Rhino

Stranded 12-02-2016

 

Rrhino1hino is a small 4 pound Atlantic green that was trapped  in the jetties at Isla Blanca park. Rhino had scrapes on his plastron (tummy) and carapace and his claws were bleeding. He had one large barnacle on his carapace as well. Rhino was in ICU for four days and is now swimming with Barber, Juniper, and Sunshine.

January Update: Rhino is doing very well, swimming with friends mentioned above, plus now Shari!

February Update: Look how pretty his plastron looks!!! Scrapes are all healed, and he weighs 6.3 lbs!!! Just waiting on steady, warmer temps. for release.
