The reptile was named after rescuers who found her floating in early March 2015 noticed the turtle's rear end was gyrating and named her after Miley Cyrus, whose expressive dance moves were dubbed "twerking” by the pop singer. The 120-pound turtle was treated at the Florida Keys-based Turtle Hospital for an intestinal impaction. (Andy Newman/Florida Keys News Bureau/HO)
