Annie Beau is a subadult loggerhead sea turtle patient that was found floating and unable to dive near the Jupiter Lighthouse. Radiographs revealed a large amount of air and crab shells throughout the turtle’s intestines. Annie Beau was put into freshwater to remove the barnacles, leeches, and other epibiota that covered its body. The turtle is receiving fluids and antibiotics, and will be closely monitored by hospital staff as the buoyancy disorder is treated.
