    Awww … how cute.

    Also, it’s a Tortoise.

      Yes, it’s a tortoise, not a turtle; no webbed feet as far as I can see. And it looks like our own Southwestern desert tortoise. What good would wheels do a creature who spends most of its time in the water?

    Obligatory ADref: I just love their leathery, snappy little faces!

    The last photo gives me an awesome idea for a new mouse…so where does one go about finding an injured turtle and giving it a purpose in life

    Must… resist… puns… so many…

    What, no welcome for our cyborg turtle overlords? Resistance is futile.

    Poor baby can never be in the wild again. I hope they compensate by giving her the most mind-blowing tortoise treats in the universe.

    And remember: no jokes about “Hot Wheels” cars, doing “wheelies,” and don’t even mention drag racing…

    About improving the wheels (and I agree, they need it) —

    Here’s the safari’s contact information.

    At least this little turtle seems happier than the little wheeled frog pictured here:

    I for one welcome our bionic turtle overlords.

    Am I the only one that saw this and immediately thought of pinewood derby mods?

    All seriousness – Tzvika needs better wheels. Those wheels look cheap and probably won’t move very well on rough or uneven surfaces.

    Great I have 2 Tortoises and know how fast they can move on legs so with wheels it mut be speeding!

    Alignment needs to be tweaked a little on that left wheel.

    I’m guessing no soap on him either.

    Sooooo cute!

    I’m already thinking of several different designs, though… one central ball (like a trackball) that could let the turtle more effectively turn, or rubber tires that wouldn’t drag on carpet, etc.

    I guess when you’re facing permanent road rash in your nether regions, you’ll take any wheels at all, though.

    Boondocker – great ideas! you must be an engineer – love that trackball idea.

    Watch out, hare!

  22. Tavie says:

    Adorable! Reminds me of this 2008 post.

  23. beemoh says:

    And, if you drag her backwards a short way on a smooth surface, she zips forward at high speed for ages!

    Tortoise R havin wheels.

  25. _Username says:

    Why didnt they give her spinners so I could really hate her

  26. Shart Tsung says:

    Monday a Kanye related post and today she is quoting Chamillionaire, very cool Xeni. I didn’t know you were a fan of hip-hop!

    Poor little critter, hopefully it can still have a good life..on wheels.

    Someone get Rollin’ Tizzerrapin some sizzurp.

  28. Epiphany says:

    That’s a Tortoise NOT a Turtle lol. Turtles & Terrapins live in the water, That’s a land animal, which will make it a TORTOISE!!
    All the same, at least it was saved, but I won’t b taking my Tortoises or Turtles to that vet if he/she can’t tell the difference between a Tortoise & a Turtle

  29. Kimmo says:

    Shouldn’t the axle be a couple of inches shorter…?

    She’ll snag the wheels on stuff.
