Amputee Sea Turtle Gets Sweet Fighter Jet Wings And A New Lease On Life
An immobilized green sea turtle in Israel has been given the chance to glide again. Hofesh (which translates to "freedom" in English), as he is now called, lost his two left flippers after being entangled in a fishing net, which left him unable to lift his head to breathe. Thanks to the smarts of Shlomi Gez, an Israeli design student, Hofesh can now swim in deeper tanks at the Israel Turtle Rescue Center. Gez modeled the turtle's new artificial fins on the design of the F-22 Raptor fighter jet.
