90-Year-Old Tortoise Gets A Set Of Wheels After The Traumatic Loss Of Its Legs!

What an inspirational story!

A 90-year-old Pembrokeshire tortoise named Mrs. T has been around for a long time, but recently the gentle creature went through the most traumatic experience of her life.

While the tortoise was hibernating in a garden shed, a rat gnawed off her two front legs. Awful!

Mrs. T’s owner Jude Ryder got the tortoise the medical help it needed to survive for $1500 — but that didn’t buy new legs.

Jude turned to her son Dale, who cleverly used the wheels from a toy plane to give Mrs. T the chance to move around again!

And the tortoise can now move faster than ever before! Jude said:

“We were afraid she may have to be put down, but her new set of wheels saved her life. She took to her new wheels straight away, but she has had to learn how to turn and stop. She can get a good speed up, much faster than before.”

So cool!

We’re glad that Mrs. T is able to get around again, and we pity any rat fools that try to mess with this tortoise again!

Of course, they probably won’t be able to catch her with her new set of wheels!
