Surgeon Develops Huge Prosthetic Leg For Wounded Elephant

Surgeon Therdchai Jivacate is a real animal-lover. While working with Friends of the Asian Elephant Foundation hospital, he developed a huge prosthetic leg for elephant lady Mosha, who was only several months old when she lost her leg due to a landmine. This prosthetic leg was the first of its kind and it definitely wasn’t the last one. Since Mosha can walk again, Jivacate provided her with several new legs in order to adjust them to her changing size and weight.
