Schildi, who has been billed as the bionic tortoise, was facing an uncertain future after losing his leg and being discarded by his owners.
The following procedure to fit him with a toy building block in Baden, Germany, helped this little guy have a brighter future. Dr. Panagiotis Azmanis said the idea to use the Lego wheel was a spur of the moment thing after he had seen how unhealthy Schildi was.
Vets at the Bird Consulting International practice decided to amputate most of the animal’s injured limb before deciding on the unorthodox use of Lego.
Superglue was used to secure the wheel. Next up, duct tape saves a hippo.
