10/28/2020 This juvenile green sea turtle was rescued on the east coast of Florida and brought to The Sea Turtle Hospital at University of Florida Whitney Lab.
10/29/2020 Due to Whitney Lab running out of rehabilitation space, the sea turtle was transferred to Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium's Sea Turtle Hospital to undergo rehabilitation. This turtle has been deemed "Beez" by Mote staff. Beez has fibropapilloma tumors that will need to be surgically removed.
10/30/2020 Beez is doing well and began eating right away. Beez was put on an injectable antibiotic and injectable iron to improve bloodwork
10/31/2020 Beez defecated (pooped) what is most likely pieces of a plastic bag.
11/14/2020 Beez has been doing great. Fibropapilloma removal surgery was performed and Beez is now tumor free! Now we will observe Beez for awhile watching for any tumor regrowths or new growth. Beez is on an oral antibiotic.
