Eros is suffering from lacerations and abrasions on her flippers and carapace (shell). She is otherwise healthy and active, and can dive below the water surface, resting at the bottom of the pool to eat pieces of lobster and fish.
We are hoping for a quick recovery and subsequent release in the coming days.
