6th grade Norfolk at Aquarium - Horizons Hampton Roads
Thanks to the crew of the nuclear submarine USS Boise, this injured loggerhead was reported floating at Norfolk Naval Base with injuries consistent with a vessel impact. Boise had severe damage to the carapace (top shell) and a broken humerus in the left front flipper. She has come a long way since then, yet Boise continues to exhibit partial rear flipper paralysis and buoyancy problems. Due to the limitations that result from these conditions, Boise has been deemed non-releasable. The Stranding Response Team is working hard to prepare Boise for placement in a permanent aquarium home where she will become a wonderful ambassador for sea turtle conservation.

Shortly thereafter, it was confirmed that the shark had passed away. “Mystic,” named after the Mystic Aquarium from which she was acquired in 1999, was over 20 years old. Tissue samples were taken as part of a necropsy but the pathology reports are pending. It is expected that the shark died of complications due to its advanced age.
