Vet Makes Wheelchair From Son’s LEGOs For Disabled Tortoise

Posted on Stories 10

German vet Dr. Carsten Plischke used his son’s LEGO brick and wheel leftovers to create a device that would make life for this poor little tortoise a lot easier.

The tortoise, named Blade, was brought to the vet‘s office after his owner Iris Peste noticed he couldn‘t hold himself up anymore. Apparently, aside from other health issues, Blade’s legs were weakened due to a growth disorder. Fortunately, Blade won’t need this “wheelchair“ for long, as it will only assist him till he gets strong enough to walk on his own again.
