Boba Fett's Story

Floating and Fibropapillomatosis

A friendly fisherman spotted this sea turtle floating and in need of rescue near the Lake Worth bridge. Our team examined Boba and noticed an old boat strike injury, a typical cause for floating behavior in sea turtles. Boba unfortunately also had a few Fibropapilloma tumors in need of removal.
