In this photo provided by the Florida Keys News Bureau, “Miley,” a sub-adult loggerhead sea turtle, swims away after being released off the Florida Keys at Islamorada, Fla., Saturday, May 2, 2015. 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)
