She stepped on a landmine - Surgeons gave her an artificial leg
They are called Mosha and Motola, and the history is nothing less than Elephantastic.

Both elephants were in fact only small calves when they stepped on landmines and lost a leg.

But instead of being left to the vultures and predators in the jungle on the border between Thailand and Myanmar, both elephants were rushed to the elephant hospital in northern Thailand, where the hospital's surgeons have made sure they have got dignified elephant lives. With prosthetic legs.

Mosha and Motola made headlines around the world more than ten years ago when they were the first elephants in the world to be fitted with prosthetic legs.

When the accident happened, they were just 'babies' of only 600-800 kg. Now they're both ladies of two tons.

As it applies to people, also elephants grow out of their prostheses, and they have had them adjusted and changed several times.

The other day it was Moshas turn to get a new prosthetic leg. For the ninth time since she was taken to the hospital, when she was only seven months old.

The elephant hospital in northern Thailand has been around since 1993. Currently it has 17 patients.
