TTX914 ("Stretch") is a juvenile green sea turtle that was outfitted with a Sirtrack KiwiSat 202 satellite transmitter and released on 20 May 2007. "Stretch" was captured during STFERL entanglement netting operations near Port Aransas, Texas, as part of a 2-year study funded by the Texas Sea Grant Program to examine occurrence and distribution of sea turtles in Texas bays. This turtle has been nicknamed "Stretch" in reference to its narrow, elongated carapace.
