The back of her carapace looks damaged. You can see it when she turns around to have a scratch on the other side. Has it healed since this filming, do you know?

Thanks for the great footage Don! It's a good thing that Little O let Billie be, as she had some serious scratching to do! Aloha, Carol

Amazing! Maybe she was trying to scratch the big parasite (or transmitter) off from the shell

Hopefully the Sat tag will get removed in the near future.

erehwyrevekool it's a satellite tag transmitter that will have been on her for two years in October. The antenna broke of over a year ago so no data since then has been collected. Once and if they remove it, the data may be there for collection.
