MUST SEE: Injured Turtle Gets Tiny Lego Wheelchair


Maryland (CNN)- An injured turtle in Maryland has a new set of wheels.

After vets got creative and used Legos to give the little guy a leg up, or rather shell up. A Maryland zoo employee found the Eastern Box turtle struggling in a grassy area. It was likely hit by a car. Officials say, “We were trying to find something to keep him off the ground since he has a fractures on the bottom of his shell”. Plans were drawn up, some technical, some not so technical. Ultimately, the toy bricks were used along with plumber’s putty to build a tiny wheelchair. Zoo officials say the turtle is responding well, and with continued rehab, should be released within a year.
