Wildlife World Zoo & Aquarium.
What a graceful beautiful creature. I wish you could have seen it swimming around the aquarium. For all it's size, it was magnificent.
Now look close, his right flipper is non-existent. It was injured in the wild, rescued by Sea Turtle, Inc., a non-profit organization. It has been determined this individual cannot be released and so will live out it's days at the Aquarium.
And, to think, it was that graceful with a damaged wing, err, flipper. I did not even notice the damaged flipper till I turned and saw the signage explaining it.
* If this Sea Turtle, Inc. is the same one as this one, we have visited this fascinating facility.
