Description

Large female green sea turtle in very shallow water. She has considerable FP tumors, and appears to be mostly blind, as she did not move away from beach goers who were wading right around her. She was also having considerable difficulty breathing (very labored, and coming up very high out of the water to take her breaths).

Both rear flippers appeared to be undamaged, but a good size chunk was missing from the shell.
