This is Peanut the turtle, shortly after being found in Missouri in 1993. She was taken to to a zoo in St. Louis where the six-pack ring was removed.
It seems that she was trapped in the plastic ring as a young turtle and was unable to free herself. Subsequently her shell moulded itself to the plastic ring and she grew in the strange shape you see here.
Unfortunately the damage is permanent, but peanut is expected to live a long life and today she serves as a mascot for the fight against beach littering.
Please, always remember to clean up after yourself at the beach.

It’s not something I often think about, what I would do or have done if I didn’t have Cerebral Palsy.
But there is one thing.
I would have absolutely LOVED to be a dancer. I’d like to think I would have had the body for it.
Unfortunately things didn’t work out in favor of that.
I could have had graceful, fluid movements but instead it’s clunky and awkward.
But it is what it is.
But then again whats stopping me.......
