LISA'S ANIMAL TALE: SQUIRREL WITH PROSTHETICS

posted by @lisaontheradio -


Surgeons in Turkey have created prosthetic limbs for a squirrel.

Actually, the "limbs" are more like wheels. Karamel the squirrel got his front legs caught in a trap and had to have them removed. Animal rescuers say the animal would not have survived in the wild with such a disability. So, they built a custom pair of front wheels for the critter. 

Orthopedists say Karamel is likely the first squirrel ever to be given prosthetics. He's now recovering and able to feed himself.
