Imagine that you're scuba diving off of the New England coast. The ocean is cold, but bearable, and as you make your way through the murky water, you begin to see familiar sights like sea stars, sea urchins and mussels. As you swim past a rock formation, you happen to see a tiny fish the size of your thumbnail wobbling along, and looking sorely out of place. Click through to read more...

Marine Animal Rescue Team Blog: Will Phoenix Rise From the Ashes?

Marine Animal Rescue Team Blog: Will Phoenix Rise From the Ashes? | NEAQ | Scoop.it

Breaking news from the rescue team:

When this turtle arrived we thought it was dead. After using an ultrasound we noticed it had a heart rate of ~2 beats per minute. We gave emergency meds including atropine to get the heart rate up and dopram to stimulate breathing.

 

We went through several more rounds of emergency medications then intubated the turtle and put it on a respirator inside of the ICU for the night.

 

The following morning the turtle was still with us, barely. Click the picture to read more.

One of the oldest groups of animals alive today, jellies often appear elegantly simple to the casual observer. But spend a little time with one of our jelly lab aquarists and you get the impression that, when it comes to jellies, there is a lot more to them than many people suspect.
