Background

Luisa was in the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Gran Canaria. She had an old and healed injury in her forelimb. Upon medical examination, the veterinarian did not find any health problem so she was released with the transmitter in Guayedra, Gran Canaia. When she was captured she was 52.5 cm of curve carapace length. This turtle was very beautiful coloured.
