Elephant in Thailand receives stylish prosthetic leg1/24/2013
After losing her leg to a land-mine in 1999, 50-year-old elephant Matola is finally getting her groove back with a brand-new prosthetic leg, and to top it all off, the leg is impressively lifelike. As if elephant prosthetics weren't novelty enough, Matola's keepers have added toenails into the mix. Look at them, a bit off color but still existent toenails. Matola, you are one pampered lady. And, readers, do not try to deny the heartwarming qualities of this photo, which was taken several years ago but is trending on Reddit today. For now, take a moment, perhaps awww a little, and then laugh at the fact that Matola’s prosthetic leg is almost as tall as the man holding it.
