Clearwater, Florida -- The Clearwater Marine Aquarium celebrated the release of the first Loggerhead turtle of the year back into the Gulf of Mexico on Clearwater Beach Monday.

Ice-T has been at the aquarium's rehabilitation center since August. When she arrived there she was battling severe pneumonia and a fungal infection, but the people at the aquarium nursed her back to health and she was cleared in December to be released.

Ice-T weighs more than 100 pounds now. We're told she'll be missed by everyone who's cared for her.
