Great stuff! Escape is a good sign of recovery. : )

Her name was Precious and gained heaps of weight and "escaped" form the turtle hospital - it was a happy ending.

What ended up happening to this turtle Mark? Did she recover? You might like to add her (and your Wombat spotting) to the global Wildlife Rescue & Rehab mission at http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/9974....
