Flamingo Gets Second Lease on Life with Prosthetic Leg

Is there anything better than seeing animals pull through life threatening situations? No. There is not.

It makes me really happy to see humans give animals a second chance in situations where they wouldn’t otherwise survive. Recently at the Sorocaba Zoo in São Paulo, Brazil, this flamingo was fitted with a prosthetic leg, as it wouldn’t have survived with only an amputation. Though the transition isn’t seamless, the flamingo obviously gets the hang of it pretty quickly, and is likely super stoked to be living and walking on our incredible planet.
