Touche the Tortoise with his new set of wheels. A disabled tortoise has been fitted with the wheels of a Hotwheels toy car to help him scoot around after he lost a leg. See swns story SWWHEEL. Eight-year-old Touche had a back leg amputated after an accident at home last week which left him limping. But a creative vet at Highcroft Vetinary Hospital in Whitchurch, Bristol decided to use a special resin and fix the base of a little toy car to the underside of Touche's shell to help him get back to his old self. The surgery took an hour and a half to complete and was a "complete success", with little Touche seemingly un-phased by his new prosthetic.
