10/28/2019 Chipi was found floating and swimming in circles in Boca Grande Pass of Charlotte County, FL. Chipi was named after the dog of the man who called in for a rescue. Chipi was brought to Mote Marine Laboratory & Aquarium's Sea Turtle Hospital to be rehabilitated. During the water test Chipi was showing signs of lethargy and neurologic issues so the turtle was left out of water over night. Chipi's admission weight is 53.7kg (118lbs).
