BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Last night, Brevard Zoo’s Sea Turtle Healing Center released Hairy at Paradise Beach in Melbourne.

Hairy, who is a juvenile green sea turtle, was found debilitated in March in Cocoa Beach.

Upon admission to the Healing Center, a CT scan revealed bone loss in both of Hairy’s flippers; this was likely a symptom of an infection, which was treated with antibiotics.
