A tortoise whose front legs were gnawed off by rats as he hibernated in his owner’s garden has had his missing limbs replaced with wheels from a model aeroplane.Vets used a type of putty to attach the tiny wheels to the bottom of Septimus’s yellow and brown shell.Now, following his surgery Septimus, who is 23cm long, is back to his old self, snacking on dandelions, strawberries and cucumber and lives inside the family home.

I like people who have a sense of individuality. I love expression and anything awkward and imperfect, because that’s natural and that’s real. Marc Jacobs (via bassikai)
