Description

Second of two turtles with FP tumors at this location. Another female, slightly smaller in size than the first with smaller tumors around the eyes: a small one on the rearmost portion around the right eye, a larger one around the left eye, that was blocking vision to the left side and left rear of the animal. Unlike many turtles that I have seen with FP tumors, this one was having it's shell actively cleaned by several species of surgeon fishes.

Possibly the same turtle that I observed at the same location on 4/25/12 (obvs#70433).
