OD, a 320-pound green sea turtle lifts his head to breathe in a transition pool at the Florida Keys-based Turtle Hospital Wednesday, July 24, 2013, in Marathon, Fla. Because of an irreparable collapsed lung, the turtle cannot be released into the wild. It is set to be loaded on a FedEx flight to Las Vegas early Thursday, July 25, and live out its life at the The Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Resort and Casino.
