Chuck is a 3-year-old, 5kg, African sulcata tortoise.
This poor tortoise had a deformed back leg, and it had to be amputated. We helped give Chuck a “leg up” by strapping a giant Lego wheel to his shell.
Bill and the team at Houston PALS created Chuck’s prosthesis with the help of Texas A&M’s College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences. Below is the final report that covers all of the procedure’s details. Click to enlarge.
