BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – ‘Kimichi’, a juvenile green sea turtle, arrived on June 6 after being found stranded at Jetty Park. Kimchi arrived at the Brevard Zoo lethargic, slightly thin, dehydrated, and with encrusting barnacles.
This sea turtle began to eat and pass fecal quickly after the intake.
Since intake, Kimchi has been eating consistently and was taken off fluids and vitamin B. He has gained weight and had his diet increased to maintain weight trends.
Kimchi is now rooming with Brother, another juvenile green sea turtle with a similar rehabilitation story.
Nothing is truly remarkable or obvious about why they stranded, but the Brevard Zoo is happy to help get these little guys back on the right flipper.
