A flipper is a typically flat limb evolved for movement through water. Various creatures have evolved flippers, for example penguins (also called "wings"), cetaceans (e.g. dolphins and whales; usually called "fins"), pinnipeds, and reptiles such as some verities of turtle and the now-extinct plesiosaurs, mosasaurs, ichthyosaurs, and metriorhynchids.

Some flippers are very efficient hydrofoils, analogous to wings (airfoils), used to propel and maneuver through the water with great speed and maneuverability (see Foil ). Some flippers are less foiled, with the appendages still apparent, as in the webbed forefeet seen in amphibious turtles.
