Stranded 01-08-17



Stix was one of our 191 cold stunned sea turtles that stranded in January 2017. Stix is a 14 lb juvenile Atlantic green with the FP virus. Stix's right front flipper was entangled in fishing line, and Stix also had fishing line coming out of the mouth and cloaca upon arrival to our hospital. Unfortunately Stix's right front flipper had to be amputated, even after receiving months of laser therapy and massages in an attempt to keep the flipper vital. This cutie has had all body tumors removed but is awaiting removal of a FP tumor in the right eye. Stix has a great appetite and is sharing a tank with our other FP greens.
