LISA'S ANIMAL TALES: MARYLAND ZOO BUILDS TURTLE A WHEELCHAIR

posted by @lisaontheradio - 


A wild Eastern box turtle was found with a broken undershell in Druid Hill Park by a Maryland Zoo employee.

Maryland Zoo veterinarians performed emergency surgery on the turtle. It's important for the shell not to touch the ground after the surgery, so they found someone to build the turtle his own wheelchair made out of Legos!

The turtle has gotten used to his new wheels and will continue to use the wheelchair until the spring.

Love this little guy!
