Filed under: HealthScience!SwimmingAlligator

Just when we thought we had seen everything…

… We stumble upon this!

An alligator is being taught to swim with a prosthetic tail after its original tail was bitten off by another alligator!

The alligator's name is Mr. Stubbs fittingly enough. He was named as such because of his lack of a tail!

The alligator was first found on a truck that was illegally transporting him. He was brought to the Phoenix Society who have helped the alligator by hooking up his body to a prosthetic tail!

So far everything is going swimmingly!!

They tried 27 times without success. But when they used two rubber fins, held together by a slip-over vest to prevent Hu from breaking free, they found a winner!!

How schweet! How CUTEz! How inspirational!!!!

Lily is not your average ball of cutie fluff wrapped in fur…she's a therapy puppy and she brings smiles to many MANY patients.
