Forever home: OD, a green sea turtle, in his new digs at Shark Reef at Mandalay Bay.
Nov 27, 2013 (midnight)
OD’s descent from carefree traveler to patient relegated to perpetual captivity started in 1999. Before that, he lived an adventurous life, hopping eastbound Atlantic currents to feast in the Mediterranean, before cruising back to the Florida Keys for a hot date. He traveled, ate, mingled with ladies. But in 1999, his life changed. That, coincidentally, was also the year his current home, the Shark Reef Aquarium, opened its doors at Mandalay Bay.
