elephants with prosthetic

blog_illl300-01

1999年一頭小亞洲象在緬甸不幸誤踩地雷,大難不死卻失去了一條前肢。牠後來被送到泰國南邦府的保護中心,幸好得有心人找來外科醫生為牠製造了義肢,讓牠能存活。多年來隨著牠長大而更換了多次義肢,成為首隻擁有義肢的大象。其後有另一大象遇上同類意外,亦被送往該保護中心,成為等二頭擁有義肢的大象。

in 1999, an 7-mouth-old elephant blasted one of her foreleg to a land mine in Myanmar. she was sent to the Friends of the Asian Elephant Foundation in Lampang, Thailand, where she got her first prosthetic leg when she turned 2.5-year-old. from time to time her prosthetic leg has to be repaired to keep up with her growth, and she has received her 9th leg recently. she is not the only lucky one, as another elephant was sent to the centre after a similar accident, and she became the second elephant that received a prosthetic leg.
