11-6-11 a stranded loggerhead was found on the beach in Corova by Rick Romano and transported to RIAC. The turtle’s x-rays show that the animal has pulmonary edema – lots of water/fluid in the lungs. The prognosis is guarded. We are waiting on bloodwork, which hopefully will be in today. In the meantime he/she is drydocked, covered with wet towels.
