Several green sea turtles with FP tumors. There were also several in the area without any tumors visible. The two largest females that I saw both had considerable tumor growth. Two smaller females and one large male in the same area had no tumor growth.

sea lettuce, another forage fave of green sea turtles. Though, again, this alga is alien and invasive and seems to promote tumors.

Description

infmaous invasive macroalgae "hookweed" or Hypnea musciformis. Turtles go bananas to eat this stuff, which unfortunately seems to be promoting herpes infections and tumors. The specimen on the left of the darker purple color is more saturated with nitrogen than the lighter specimen on the right.

I was headed out to do some in-water surf photography, and ran across two green sea turtles sleeping on the beach early in the morning. Both had substantial FP tumors. There were four turtles feeding in the line up, none of those turtles showed any external signs of FP tumors.

We watched this Hawaiian green turtle surface very close to shore, but it definitely couldn't see us due to it's tumor load on its head.
