Washington State University's College of Veterinary Medicine has successfully replaced a tortoise's leg with a wheel. The 12-year-old African spur-thighed tortoise named Gamera was suffering from an infection after a severe thermal injury and tissue damage from an unknown source. His left front leg was then amputated at the shoulder and replaced by a swiveling wheel attached to his shell which is similar to those found on the bottom of office chairs. Reportedly, the tortoise is gaining weight and is thriving with his new appendage.
