This Tortoise Is Cruising Around On Legs Made From Wheels Following A Vicious Attack

A Welsh tortoise recently lost her legs when a rat snuck into her hut during a period of hibernation and gnawed them off. The animal’s owner wasn’t willing to let his tortoise die so wheels were added to their front side.

Originally a vet wanted to add prosthetic legs to the tortoise, but too much of the animal’s legs were gnawed off.

The amazing creature is 90 years old and their own tells the BBC that they are hoping for another amazing 90 years. “She can get a good speed up,” Mrs. T’s owner Jude Ryder told the broadcaster, “much faster than before.”

Basically this tortoise received a speed upgrade, sort of like pimping their ride.
