Turtle Gets Wheels (Video)

A  turtle named Zvilka was brought to the Israeli Wild Animal Hospital in Ramat Gan after he was run over by a lawnmower. The turtle suffered serious spinal injuries and a cracked shell, so doctors glued wheels to his abdomen in an effort to aid in a full recovery. Good luck, Zvilka!
