The Turtle Hospital

The Turtle Hospital of Marathon is a veterinary hospital for sick and injured turtles. Before we talk about the turtles you need to know a couple things. There are five different turtles that live in Florida; the leather back, he has spikes in his throat, is the largest weighing 1543 pounds. They can grow to be 7.2 feet long. Hawks bill are the smallest and green turtles are the most common; a loggerhead’s head looks a bit like a log floating in the water. The white Kemps Ridley is the the rarest.

The green turtles at the Turtle Hospital had tumors or were waiting for a year after the tumors were gone so they could leave. Others had bubble but. This happens when a boat runs into them and air gets under their shell and their back end floats. These turtles can not be released because they would not survive in the wild. The hatchlings there were cute. We loved the Turtle Hospital.
