Dave the Turtle

For those of you that have seen the pictures I posted a few months ago of Dave the Turtle, I have some bad news. Unfortunately he died on the 8th August 2007 story here The reason for death is still undetermined although recent from speaking to fellow staff in the area, he's n.een looking to well for a while, certainly when I saw him in June he was looking very lethargic. An autopsy is currently being carried out to find the cause of death, whether it is due to infection or his sudden 'celebrity status', we may never know. He was a pleasure to see in the water when I did, especially with no other divers around to disturb his feeding. I will certainly treasure the photo's I have due to his remarkable tale of recovery.
