Description

Female green sea turtle with FP tumors (the biggest one under the left flipper). Also she had a considerable chunk of her right front flipper missing (shark bite ?). (photo 2) If that is a shark bite, the shark's jaw appears to be over 12" across. It doesn't look like a boat strike, or fishing gear injury.

whoa that 2nd photo is sort of ominous. I'll look into that.
