Amazing! Turtle Recovers From Shark Attack With Prosthetic Fins!!

Filed under: TurtleShark

Usually when a sea turtle loses a fin due to a shark attack - there's now a finless turtle in the world and that's the end of that.

But when Hu, a 25-year-old female loggerhead, was found by fisherman and sent to the Suma Aqualife Park in Kobe, Japan - the researchers there were hellbent on getting this turtle a fin again!

They tried 27 times without success. But when they used two rubber fins, held together by a slip-over vest to prevent Hu from breaking free, they found a winner!!
