90-Year-Old Tortoise Gets Wheels After Losing Legs in Rat Attack

TIME

A 90-year-old tortoise named Mrs. T now has a pair of wheels to get around after a rat gnawed off her front legs while she was hibernating in a garden shed earlier this month in Pembroke, West Wales, The Telegraph and BBC News report.

Owner Jude Ryder turned to son Dale Sinclair-Jones, an engineer, who glued an axis connecting wheels from a model aircraft onto her shell.

Now the pet reptile can reportedly move faster than ever, so hares everywhere better watch out.
