A 90 Year Old Tortoise with No Legs Was Given a New Set of Wheels. Literally.

Most news that involves a tortoise is pretty amazing. 

Case in point: the story of this 90-year-old (!) Welsh land-dwelling turtle fitted with a pair of badass front wheels after two of her legs were chewed off by rats. 

Veterinarian – and almost $2,000 in medical expenses – couldn’t save Mrs. T from what should have been sure death. It wasn’t until her owner’s son, a mechanical engineer, put his expertise to utmost good use that she was granted a new spin on life:

“Hopefully she’s got another 90 years left in her,” said one of Mrs. T’s owners. 

We absolutely, sincerely hope so.
