Video of Orion's Surgery

Here is some footage of the Orion's procedure that Dr. Innis reported on earlier. Orion is our Kemp's ridley turtle that is still recovering from pneumonia.

The footage shows Dr. Innis drilling into the carapace of the sea turtle so that we can acquire a biopsy from the lung. Orion was first put under anesthesia, then had a small hole (5 mm diameter) drilled through the shell. Next you will also see the lung biopsy being taken through the endoscope.
