Theo

Adopted By Eaton Dog Grooming



Founding Name: Theo
Theo is a nimble little dude who does not let the bigger turtles push it around ....


Location Found  Two Rocks beach, Perth
Date Found  August 10th 2017
Initial Weight & Length  Weight 87 grams Length 7.5cm
Distinguished Markings Theo presented missing most of it's front left flipper. It was an old injury and had fully healed. Because another turtle had the same amputated flipper we painted 3 bright orange dots on Theo's shell to distinguish between the two turtles.
Latest Weight and length Weight  339 grams Length 11.7cm October 18th 2017
Overall Progress Theo arrived at the Dolphin Discovery Centre after initial treatment at Perth Zoo. Bright as a button, active and eating well right from the start, Theo was able to navigate it's way around the tank even though it was missing a flipper, but only able to dive about 15cms.  Theo is now eating well and putting on lots of weight, but can still only dive short depths. Hopefully it won't be long before Theo's diving ability improves and it is able to dive all the way to the bottom of the tank to rest.
