Argus was rescued in July, 2016, 3 miles north of the 7 mile bridge in Marathon where she was found with a trap line and buoy entangled around her rear flipper. Argus was taken to the Turtle Hospital for treatment. Argus’s body and eyes were covered in Fibropapilloma tumors. Argus's treatment included two tumor removal surgeries, broad spectrum antibiotics, anti-parasitic medications, vitamins, and a healthy diet of squid and greens. Argus is strong and tumor free!
