90-Year-Old Tortoise Gets Wheels for Legs, is Now Earth’s Slowest Cyborg
This tortoise may look fast. Those wheels strapped to her shell make it look like she’s about to hit the afterburners and teach some hare a lesson in proper pacing. But no, this tortoise is just as slow as a normal tortoise, even if she is technically bionic now.
According to the Guardian, Mrs. T was hibernating this winter (as tortoises do, apparently) when a rat broke into her hutch and attacked. She lost her two front legs, and her enterprising owners attached two model airplane wheels to her shell.
