If at first you don’t succeed at getting a badly injured turtle to swim again, keep trying newer and better artificial flippers until you find a set that works. That was the mantra of keepers at the Suma Aqualife Park in Kobe, Japan, after they rescued this loggerhead turtle, which had gotten the worst of an encounter with a shark. The set-up seen here is the 27th pair of replacement flippers to be fitted to the 25-year-old turtle.
