Introducing Allison, a rescued green sea turtle who has only one flipper. She is seen here swimming with the aid of a fin at the Sea Turtle Inc. in South Padre Island, Texas. Allison lost three of her flippers in a shark attack, leaving her with just her right front flipper that can only propel her to the left. The neoprene vest and fin was developed at the turtle rescue centre.
