Loggerhead turtle

Loggerhead Turtle

Our Loggerhead Turtle, Antiopi, is between 50 and 60 years old! She was rescued from the Greek island of Zakynthos where she had suffered head injuries from a boat propeller. Sadly, she cannot be returned to the wild because of the damage to her brain so we have given her a permanent home here in Scarborough. She can often be found sleeping near the bottom corner of the tunnel with her head in the rocks.

Things to Do

  • Watch Antiopi steal mackerel from the Sharks, brave girl!
  • See her beautiful scales as she glides through the water
  • Watch her trying to say Hello!
  • Find out how fast she swims
  • Look at how big she has grown
