10/23/2020 This juvenile green sea turtle was found floating off the east coast of Florida in Duval County. The turtle was then taken to The Sea Turtle Hospital at University of Florida's Whitney Lab for rehabilitation.
10/29/2020 Due to Whitney Lab running out of room for rehab patients, this turtle was transferred to Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium's Sea Turtle Hospital for continued care. This turtle was deemed "Bumble" by Mote staff, we later found out it was being called "Ruth" at Whitney Lab so it can go by both. Bumble presented with fibropapilloma tumors that will have to be removed surgically.
10/30/2020 Bumble is doing well, started eating right away. Bumble was put on an injectable antibiotic and an injectable iron supplement.
11/16/2020 Bumble has been doing great, no longer on an antibiotic but is still on injectable iron supplement. Bumble's body needs more time before undergoing fibropapilloma removal surgery.
