Snorkel, our Loggerhead Turtle, travelled to Cheltenham last weekend for a full medical check-up.
She had an MRI scan at a special unit, the results of which, at first glance, appear to show no tumour.
Having retuned to the Aquarium, Snorkel is resting in her own tank so that we can closely monitor her.
As a result she will be off display until Monday 4th July.
