Two sea turtles are back home in the ocean Tuesday night in the waters of Brevard County.

The pair of greens — named "Packer" and "Sprout” — were found cold-shocked and under nourished in January.

One was found on the beach near Melbourne by a beach-goer, the other was discovered at Port Canaveral by deputies.

Both were rehabilitated at the Brevard Zoo Sea Turtle Healing Center.

The turtles are in their teens and when fully grown can reach more than 300 pounds.
