Not content to see him living in a terrarium, a German pet owner took her tortoise to a veterinarian when he was having mobility issues.

The doctor used Legos belonging to his son to fashion a temporary device with wheels to help the animal propel himself forward until he regains full function of his limbs.

An article in DesignBoom.com has more photos of Dr. Carsten Plischke’s clever invention.

(WATCH him walk in this German TV segment [Rewind to beginning if you speak German])
