Gracie is another big girl with a carapace length of 107.8 cm curved carapace length. She nested on Casey Key in 2005. Her skin biopsy will tell us about the genetic picture of loggerheads in the SE United States, and her eggshells will give some ideas of if she is exposed to heavy metal contaminants at her home foraging ground.
