Sea Turtles

The other day we went to the Sea Turtle Rehabilitation center on Jekyll Island. It is an amazing facility comprised of two buildings that are open to the public. In the first building there is a big plate glass window which allows visitors to watch operations taking place in the surgery. During our visit the surgeon was working on a turtle's shell.

These pictures are from the second building. The biggest of the sea turtles (the largest we saw was 280 lbs) have tanks to themselves. Each tank has name plates and a booklet giving information as to why the turtle is in rehab, weight, app. age and where the turtle was rescued.

This little guy could not have weighed a pound. He was so tiny.

This picture was taken looking into an overhead mirror.

This is the May spiral ---- more colorful than the April spiral to reflect the colors of the flowers now found in bloom.

It is a beautiful warm day today and this little guy was taking full advantage of the sun - just lazing around without a care in the world.
