Sportress of Blogitude’s Wild Kingdom: Gamera The Amputee Tortoise

In today’s Wake N’ Blog, the odd story of the day which kicks off each link dump highlighted Gamera, a tortoise who, due to injury, had a leg amputated which was later replaced with a wheel. Thanks to the folks at BuzzFeed, I now present you a video of Gamera tooling around with its new mechanical appendage, which upon further inspection, appears to be nothing more than a modified chair caster screwed into the shell of the poor creature. Huh.

Well, at Gamera looks happy. At least as far as I can tell.
