Background

Sha'adi is an adult female Loggerhead sea-turtle and was admitted to the center in October 2016. She was unintentionally caught by a fisherman on a rod from shore, who reported the case to The Nature and Parks Authority and the rescue center. Sha'adi arrived with two fishing hooks, one in her mouth and the other lodged deep in the esophagus. Luckily, both were removed without surgery (through the mouth). Later, she underwent an x-ray to make sure there were no more hooks hiding in her intestine, which there weren't, but it did reveal some free fluid in her abdomen. Paired with her low red blood cell count, our team was worried she might be suffering from internal bleeding. Now that her blood chemistry has improved and she is eating a full meal on a daily basis,she is ready to go home.
