Motola limbers up with her new leg
A 48-year-old Thai elephant has been fitted with an permanent artificial leg, 10 years after losing a limb from treading on a land mine.
Motola was measured up at an elephant hospital on Saturday before experts made the leg and fitted it on Sunday.
The elephant had been walking with the help of a temporary artificial leg made of canvas, the Associated Press news agency reports.
A much younger elephant at the same hospital already has a false leg.
