Mrs. T is a pet tortoise in Pembrokeshire, UK. She’s about 90 years old. During the past winter, she was hibernating in an outdoor shed. Rats chewed her front legs off. She had lost too much to use prosthetic feet. So her owner, Jude Ryder, and his son, an engineer, came up with this solution: wheels.
They’re from a toy airplane. The axle is fixed onto her shell with resin. Mrs. T quickly learned how to use the wheels. In fact, according to Ryder, Mrs. T can now move even faster than ever before!
