Elephant With a Prosthetic Leg

It's sad to see this wee elephant named Mocha got its leg blown off by a land mine (grrr ... stupid land mine!). But thanks to modern science and the Friends of the Asian Elephant organization in thailand, Mocha can walk again ... with a prosthetic leg!

Check out Miss C's post at our pal mental_floss about all sort of animal prosthetics (including a rubber tail for Fuji the dolphin, new beak for Uzonka the stork, and a pegleg for George the Pegleg Parrot!)
