AWW- Injured Turtle Gets LEGO® Wheelchair

An injured wild Eastern box turtle at The Maryland Zoo is getting some help thanks to LEGO bricks.

Zoo officials say the turtle was found in Druid Hill Park in July by a zoo employee, and was brought to the zoo’s hospital for treatment.

“He had multiple fractures on his plastron, the bottom part of his shell. Because of the unique placement of the fractures, we faced a difficult challenge with maintaining the turtle’s mobility while allowing him to heal properly,” said Dr. Ellen Bronson, senior director of animal health, conservation, and research at the Zoo.

Best use of legos EVER!
