Mr. Hyde was transferred to the Georgia Sea Turtle Center, Jekyll Island, GA on February 6, 2010 with 2 other cold-stunned loggerheads from NC, Rostrum and Kera. Of the three, Mr. Hyde was the largest of the group. He/she had an unusual spike on the posterior vertebral scute, which resembled a thorn. Shorty upon arrival at the GSTC, Mr. Hyde defecated a piece of pink balloon and a roundworm
Mr. Hyde was successfully rehabilitated and deemed fit for release within a few months. He/she, along with Kera, was released on April 24, 2010 from Tybee Island, GA as part of a collaboration between the GSTC and the Tybee Marine Science Center and followed their annual Turtle Trot, a 5K run/walk fundraiser to benefit the Tybee Sea Turtle Project.
