12 of 12. This Green Sea Turtle has been injured sometime in the past. Its right rear flipper is missing and there is a large indent in the shell. The injuries could of been caused by a shark attack. Fortunately this turtle seems to have overcome its injuries and appears healthy. Turtles can usually maneuver very well with the loss of a rear flipper, but would probably have much more difficulty surviving the loss of a front flipper.
