Snapping Turtle #17-0568

On April 22, a juvenile Snapping Turtle was found on a trail in Bayse, Virginia,  and was transported to the Wildlife Center.

Upon admission, the Snapping Turtle #17-0568 was lethargic and quiet, relative to the normal behavior of Snapping Turtle patients. The veterinary staff identified fractures in the lower jaw on both the left and right sides, and a hairline fracture on the upper jaw.  Although the fracture fragment in the lower jaw was still in place, it was mobile and needed to be stabilized.
