Solstice, the olive ridley turtle that was found on a Washington beach last month, is recuperating at the Oregon Coast Aquarium. She has now reached her ideal 75 degree body temperature.
When Solstice was found, she was dehydrated, hypothermic and emaciated. Although she is now eating and swimming around, she now has an air pocket under her shell. Erin Paxton with the Oregon Coast Aquarium says Solstice has a long recovery ahead.
