Marine Mammal Center Needs Help Feeding Huge Turtle
What do you feed an almost 300-pound turtle?
That was the question facing the experts at the Marine Mammal Stranding Center in Brigantine.
After taking in the huge loggerhead sea turtle a few weeks ago, the staff was challenged with keeping the huge creature well fed.
It turns out the big girl is a picking eater, turning away crab, but enjoying whelk - a variety of sea snail. That's a pretty expensive palate, and the Center has already run through it's food budget for the year.
