An Oklahoma sea turtle is getting settled in her new Dallas home.

Sea Life Aquarium in Grapevine, Texas came to pick up Thalassia Thursday.

She was struck by a boat 10 years ago in Florida and needed a safe place to live until she got bigger. Now, she's healthy, strong and ready for her new home.

"It's a home just built right for her, so she'll be happy, she'll thrive in there. She'll have another turtle buddy. She will have all the luxuries that a sea turtle can have,” said Krista Huebner with Sea Life Aquarium.

Thalassia will share her new home with two others.
