No its not missing anything. its spine is kinked like an S... well a backwards S. it swims around like a dog with 3 legs runs... kind of off but still just as fast. notice the date on the first pic and here is one from just a few min ago. I assure you hes living the good life

it must not have been too long cause his bro is right next to him and they were kinda tiny. idk how old they are in the first pick though.
