3-finned Green Sea Turtle

3-Flipper Honu

A green sea turtle missing one flipper cruises through the waters of Hawaii.

Sea turtles lose fins for a variety of reasons, including attacks from predators like sharks or getting tangled in nets. Sea turtles seem to get along fairly well with a missing fin.

“Keep on keeping on” , the 3 finned Honu making his way to the surface for a quick breath and checkout what’s going on above his wonderful blue world of the ocean.

There are even some stories of sea turtles receiving water wing prosthetic pieces:
