Coral was tagged in the wee hours of the morning on May 30, 2005 on Sapelo Island. She had a large bump on one of her vertebral scutes. Coral was found while laying a nest, which was very exciting for us to watch! Coral has been relatively easy to locate. She likes to spend time in Sapelo Sound with many of our other turtles.
Coral was named by Christopher Aimager, a 5th grade student in Mrs. Alexander's class at Early County Elementary School in Blakely, GA.
