This turtle came in very poor condition. It had not eaten in such a long time that its digestive system has completely shut down. The good news is that it is able to swim in shallow water and has eaten a very tiny amount of food. This one will likely be in the STAR Center for a long time.  Estimated that it is 20 pounds underweight.
