This 99-pound (45 kg) loggerhead sea turtle was lucky to survive a curious predicament.

The animal tried to swallow a puffer fish which inflated the turtle’s body to about twice its normal size in defense. As a result, the fish got lodged in the turtle’s throat.
After treatment, the lucky turtle was released back into waters of the Florida Keys.
