Sea Turtle Rehab Pool T3
You are watching sea turtle rehab pool T3, where three rescued sea turtles are recovering. Leonardo, Raphael and April are three sea turtles that were recently transferred from Volusia County, Florida. They arrived in a group of six sea turtles that were all named after Ninja Turtles!
There are several sea turtle rehab pools at CMA with rescued sea turtles recovering. You can learn more about our current animal hospital patients and view them when you visit the animal hospital at Clearwater Marine Aquarium.
Do you see a sleeping turtle? Although turtles are air-breathers, they often prefer to sleep on the floor of their pool while they rest. Don’t worry if you see a turtle resting on the bottom. While resting on the floor, turtles will surface to breathe, then may swim right back to their resting position on the bottom to sleep some more!
