Legless tortoise given prosthetic wheels

Turtle on wheels

Mrs. T the tortoise, age 90, was outfitted with wheels after her legs were gnawed off in a rat attack.

“She took to them straight away, but she has had to learn how to turn and stop,” says Mrs. T’s caretaker June Ryder, whose mechanical engineer son built the wheel system. “She can get a good speed up, much faster than before. Mrs T is still quite young for a tortoise. She could go on for another 50 years – all she needs is a new set of tyres every now and again.”
