We were doing a bit of work on my boat at the Galveston Yacht Basin when this guy swam up to us and decided to hang out. He was moving kinda awkwardly and had an unusual amount of growth on his shell. He let us just pick him up. We called the turtle people with NOAA and they came and got him. They said he shouldn't be in that close with the weather this cold and would not make it if he stayed. They agreed with the excessive growth on the top of his shell and that maybe he was also injured or sick. Pretty cool though and glad we found him before this freeze coming in did.
