He is a Hawkbill Turtle at the Fort Worth Zoo. Originally a rescue turtle that is on loan to the zoo until he is able to be released back into the wild. We are not sure what happened to his flipper. It probably got eaten when still a baby by a bird or some other animal. He does quite well without it though.
We Rescued a Turtle Today
Because of the rains in Texas there have been a lot of displaced animals. My husband found this turtle on the road and today we let it go in the creek at the botanical gardens. I took lots of pictures of this little guy and I'll post them later.
Grapevine Mills Mall - I thought it was illegal to sell these guys due to salmonella.
