Turtle prosthesis a success
From my area, a funny but awesome story of a 3-legged turtle’s recovery.
A 12-year old African spur-thighed tortoise got some new wheels recently. It’s left front leg had to be amputated by Washington State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine and it was replaced with a swiveling wheel attached to its shell. Gamara was relinquished by its owner on April 20th due to a severe thermal injury and tissue damage from an unknown source.
