turtle tortoise living in Israel was paralyzed in her rear legs when a run-away lawn mower caused severe damage to her shell and spinal cord a couple of months ago.
Caring veterinarians at the Ramat Gan Safari near Tel Aviv gave this paraplegic reptile a second shot at life after fitting Tzivka with a pair of Hot Wheels on Wednesday, MSNBC reported. The wheels were attached with what appears to be a form of putty in front of her hind legs, and were elevated to keep her shell from being worn down.
She is now the hottest chick on the block… nothing better than a pretty girl, with an infectious smile and a hot pair of wheels. Seriously look at her pearly whites, such a simple idea can make a world of difference.
