thats so wonderfull. i wonder if they will have to make new tail sizes as the dolphin ages.
i like how this helped out the Airforce man that lost both legs as well. trough all the bad, something good always comes out at the end. (most times)

I know everyone is thinking it, but darn it, I'm going to say it.

Do they make that in a size medium. It could really help improve my finning and SAC rate.

Actually, this isn't the first dolphin to have prosthetics done, and they DID have to size them for different ages! Some dolphins have old prosthetics that aren't used all the time, because they were too heavy when the technology was first introduced. I assume they have been replaced with lighter materials as of recent, though
