Joey was one of the residents at the Turtle Hospital in Marathon, Florida. The hospital has been there for several decades and is really a great place to visit. Very educational and informative. They have several permanent residents, but Joey was not one of them. He was there long enought to make sure he was healthy and able to forage and feed on his own. In the meantime, he was used as a turtle travler to the schools. Theis little guy obviously loved his handler, following him around the pool as he walked and talked to the tour. He constantly was reaching toward him with his flipper, trying to get out of the pool.
