Casper is doing well

This is an update on the Kemp's ridley turtle named Casper. The last post about Casper, on December 16, reported that he had begun a GI contrast study because his digestive system was not working well. Eventually, all of the contrast material passed through his digestive system. It took nine days, but it all made it through!

Casper has been eating very well lately, and we have started to wean him off some of the drugs that helped his digestion. We are hoping that his system continues to function normally after the drugs have been stopped.
