Meet Crush, a Baby Green Turtle

Crush was sent to us by Naifaru Juvenile centre in Lhaviyani atoll. He was being kept as a pet before he was handed over to their centre.

Intake Date: February 10th February 2018
Length: 11cm
Weight: 180 g
Status: Current patient

Whilst in the care of  Naifaru Juvenile centre, Crush developed an ear abscess which required surgery. Crush is doing very well after his surgery, his ear has now mostly healed and there are currently no signs of the problem returning.

He is enjoying his daily buffet of salad options and some fish supplemented with calcium and vitamins to help him harden up his shell; his shell is very soft from calcium and sunlight deficiency during the time he was kept as a pet.
