ST. THOMAS — Khepri, a juvenile green sea turtle, will return to the waters around St. Thomas today after more than five months of rehabilitation for a nearly fatal shark bite.

When the turtle was spotted stranded at the bottom of the Coculus Point cliffs on Feb. 28, it wasn’t clear that it was even alive.
