Our baby Hawksbill turtles have overcome a skin infection and are now healthy and very active. They have grown and gained weight, and now their carapace deformations are less obvious.

These guys are healthy and growing fast! They are able to dive after their food and have started to rest at the bottom of the pool. They love to eat lobster and play with their enrichment toys (EEDs).
