Rehabbed Terrapin (Princess Gaia) in the Wild

Tuesday, July 29th, 2008

The young female terrapin (Princess Gaia), returned to the wild on July 18th after long-term emergency care at Tufts and rehab at the National Marine Life Center, was recaptured this afternoon in the Run … about a mile from its release point at the Lieutenant Island Bridge. She was spotted hanging out with another young female almost her identical size and age. Note that the left rear leg (closest to the camera in this video) is the one that she lost from the knee down and the leg that Tufts so carefully repaired. Not too shabby for a 3 1/2 legged turtle!
