Shellie

Click on a the turtle or a circle location icon for date and any notes.


A green turtle encountered on May 23 at 12:41 am. Curved shell length 107 cm, curved shell width 102 cm. Researchers needed to tag one more green turtle, but they walked the beach for many hours without a single turtle sighting. Shellie was in the middle of a 'false crawl' when she was found on the beach.  Researchers were never so glad to see a turtle! She was promptly tagged and released soon after. Like Luria, Shellie had a beautiful shell with little to no marks, scratches, barnacles or algae.
