Yoda's Story

Yoda was a turtle who did not make it due to extremely severe FP tumors.

While this disease is mysterious, research suggests that it may be connected to polluted waters. Yoda came to us with 83 separate FP tumors ranging from 1 to 10cm. With tumors on the eyes and face, removal was not an option and Yoda was euthanized upon arrival.
