Today was surgery day for Hungryneck, the tiny green sea turtle that stranded Monday at WW#12. It was the victim of a boat strike. Besides several other injuries, including a missing left rear flipper, the main concern was a mangled right rear flipper. The SC Aquarium’s Sea Turtle Hospital veterinarian Dr. Shane Boylan and his staff operated today. Here is the report from Bill’s contact Barb:

“The surgery went well today! The flipper was reattached and now we wait…‚Äč”

If this lone flipper heals, this turtle can eventually be released back into the ocean. Go Hungryneck Go…¬†TURTLESTRONG!!

Hungryneck had surgery today to repair the right rear flipper. With time, we pray it heals so this little turtle can go ‘home”!
