An Injured Turtle Gets Lego Wheelchair

posted by Jessie - 

An injured turtle in Maryland has a new set of wheels.

Vets got creative and used Legos to give the little guy a hand... or rather some wheels.

A Maryland Zoo employee found the turtle struggling in a grass area and she realized he was probably hit by a car. 

The point of the Lego wheelchair is to keep the turtle off the ground since he has fracture on the bottom of his shell... so they used the toy bricks and plumber's putty to make the tiny wheelchair.

Zoo officials say the turtle is responding well and with continued rehab, he should be released within a year.
