My Bionic Pet
Web-Exclusive Video: Sea Turtle With One Flipper Gets New Rudder Prosthetic

Sea Turtle Inc. Director Jeff George introduces Allison, a 70-pound sea turtle who lost three of her flippers in a predator attack. Thanks to the advocacy of a 21-year-old intern, Allison has received a prosthetic rudder made out of carbon fiber to create drag in the water and allow her to swim freely.

My Bionic Pet premieres Wednesday, April 9, 2014, on PBS.
