Yu is a loggerhead turtle that lost her front fins to a shark attack. She is seen earlier this year wearing the latest in artificial flipper technology in Japan. The rubber limbs are attached to a soft vest that simply goes on over her head. "We have worked hard to design the vest in a way that prevents the turtle from taking it off unwittingly," said the aquarium's curator Naoki Kamezaki.
