Lil' Tortoise Gets A LEGO Wheelchair While His Legs Heal

December 9, 2014


Note: It might not look like a chair, but that's because you're not a turtle.

Meet Blade. Blade is a little tortoise with a growth condition that weakened his legs and made it difficult to move. So Blade's caretaker took him to vet Carsten Plischke, who fixed him up with a little improvised LEGO wheelchair rig so he can scoot around while his legs grow stronger (previously: this turtle who got a single LEGO wheel for an amputated leg). Thankfully, Blade is expected to make a full recovery, which is a relief, because I really didn't feel like crying today.

Keep going for a couple more shots.



Thanks to Geoff, who built his pet turtle a rocketpack. His turtle lives on the moon now.
