Background

Gabi is a sub-adult loggerhead sea turtle who was found by the UGA research vessel, the RV Georgia Bulldog on June 23, 2010. Gabi was brought to the GSTC because he/she had a slight overload of epibiota, was lethargic, and had a mild anemia. During his/her initial exam by Dr. Norton, Gabi defecated some intestinal mucosa, which could mean that there is more going on with Gabi than meets the eye. It took Gabi a couple of days to start eating, but today is eating well. With the right nutrition and some TLC, Gabi has improved rapidly and today catches and eats live crabs like a healthy loggerhead sea turtle.
