Iris Peste”s tiny tortoise friend, Blades, had trouble getting around. More than just the average slow poke, Blades was clearly not well and being held back for some reason. Peste brought her buddy to Dr. Carsten Plischke, where they discovered the cause of Blade”s issues. They also found the most amazing way to help him heal.
Dr. Plischke discovered a number of issues on the poor guy, including worms and a growth disorder.
His legs became so weak that he wasn”t able to move.
The doctor was inspired by his son”s LEGO bricks lying around and fitted the tortoise with some new wheels.
Now Blades can scoot himself around with ease while allowing his limbs to heal.
The two sets of wheels support his body. Once his legs heal, he”ll be up and around on his own again.
(via My Modern Met.)
In the meantime, he should think about giving hares a run for their money. Such an epic race would be even more of a shoo-in for Blades and his sweet wheels.
