08/01/2017 Turtle was found floating in Sarasota Bay and was transported to Mote for rehabilitation. Animal is severely underweight and the carapace is 100% covered in epibiopta (barnacles, algae, etc.). Mr. Spock was given subcutaneous fluids and placed in tank at low water level overnight.
08/02/2017 Mr. Spock ate today and even foraged for some food on his own by the end of the day!
08/07/2017 Animal continues to eat more each day. Is currently receiving injecatble antibiotics and iron supplementation.
