Rescued Sea Turtle Moves To Vegas!!

| Filed under: Sin CitySea CreaturesTurtleRescueShark

OD is a 320-pound, 50-year-old sea turtle.

He was rescued from the Florida Keys in 2008 after he got sick.

Now, he's finally moved to his forever home!

After literally being FedEx'd to Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, he's now finally settling into the hotel's 1.3-million-gallon Shipwreck Exhibit.

That sounds like a HUGE tank! He's joining two other green sea turtles, sharks, rays, fish and more! 22 other species in all!!

That's ahmazying!

The aquarium's director said:

"Shark Reef Aquarium guests can visit OD while learning about the turtle's wild habitat and the impacts humans have on endangered green sea turtles. We are honored to offer OD a permanent home and are committed to creating an enriching environment for his continued health."

So not only will OD be all sorts of healthy, he'll help people learn about conservation.

That's double great!! Way to go, Mandalay Bay!

Check out the video (above) to see OD getting ready to ship out!
