3-legged 4×4 tortoise
Tina the tortoise has been given a lift after being fitted with a suspension system and a pneumatic tyre to help her cope with muddy terrain.
The three-legged reptile can now go ‘off-road’ after the 4×4-style system was attached to her shell.
Tina was fitted with a plastic wheel four years ago to replace her rear right leg.
But our increasingly warmer autumns mean Tina hibernates later in the year, leaving her battling to cope with muddy grass and slopes and dead leaves.
So the rudimentary wheel has now been replaced with an air-filled tyre and a spring suspension system with shock absorber.
