Abstract

Necropsy of a stranded adult leatherback turtle (Dermochelys coriacea) determined that the animal died as a result of valvular endocarditis and septicemia. Vibrio damsela was isolated from the endocardial thrombus. The route of entry for infection probably was through the gastrointestinal tract.
