elephants with prosthetic



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.
