Background

The name Cherokee Rose was submitted by Taylor Konishi, 4th grader from Manning Oaks Elementary in Alpharetta, GA. Cherokee Rose is the official wildflower for the state of Georgia.

Cherokee Rose is one of the biggest turtles in our study at 101.5 cm curved carapace length. She has wandered further than expected during the internesting period including a trip to Florida (near St. Augustine)where she appears to have nested. Cherokee is one of the 3 nesting females tagged during our study with a large propeller wound on her carapace.
