See the tail on this turtle? This indicates that this is a mature male Loggerhead. The large tail is a secondary sex characteristic in male sea turtles. It is the largest Loggerhead treated so far at the STAR Center weighing 272 pounds. The picture doesn’t really show how massive he is, so come see him soon. He will likely be a short term patient.
