The artificial limb put on the tortoise at didn't come from a high tech prosthetics lab. It came from an Ace Hardware store. The caster style wheel cost around $7, according to the two veterinarians who installed it on the tortoise after amputating a damaged front leg. (AP Photo/Nicholas K. Geranios)
