Cat and Scott Eastman
"Eastman" is named after Scott and Cat Eastman of St. Augustine, FL where this adult male loggerhead sea turtle was captured. "Eastman" measured 87.2cm SCLmin with a tail length of 45.2cm (52% of carapace length). At the time of capture, "Eastman" had a soft plastron and ultrasound revealed a regressing testis, suggesting that he mated this spring.
