Munchkin the sea turtle is HUGE! She weighs over 300 lbs! So when someone spotted her lying still on the beach, they thought she was a giant rock. But really she was too sick and too hurt to move. A team of real animal rescuers spent months taking care of Munchkin and helping her feel like herself again. And after a lot of work and a lot of patience, Munchkin was finally ready to swim free!
