PIGGLY WIGGLY



GREEN

Chelonia mydas

Juvenile


ADMIT
February 2, 2009
RELEASED

Weight  3.82  kg  
SCL:  31.4  cm  
SCW:  25.0 cm  

THE STRANDING Found cold stunned on Cape Lookout near 3 others that did not survive.
Rescued by biologist Jon Altman and transferred to Wendy Cluse at Harker's Island.  The turtle then visited Drs. Harms and Anderson for a round of injections, necessary but seemingly unappreciated.  Wendy then transferred the turtle to KBSTRRC volunteers Jim and Sandy Sly at the Piggly Wiggly in Swansboro, and a name was born.

THE TREATMENT Warmed slowly.  Wound on left rear flipper flushed and medicated.
Antibiotics by injecton.
