Unusual Rescue of a Sea Turtle (5 pics)

Posted in Animals   16 Jan 2012   / 8242 views

This 99-pound (45 kg) loggerhead sea turtle was lucky to survive a curious predicament.

 

The animal tried to swallow a puffer fish which inflated the turtle’s body to about twice its normal size in defense. As a result, the fish got lodged in the turtle’s throat.

After treatment, the lucky turtle was released back into waters of the Florida Keys.

Both the turtle and the fish are alive.

Puffer fish are poisonous. After removing the puffer fish from the turtle, it was then safe to kill and eat the turtle.
