Paraplegic armadillo rolls around in custom made wheelchair and he looks cool

Your reference point for armadillos is probably from that episode of Friends where Ross introduces the holiday armadillo.

And it makes sense, seeing as we don’t see the mammal much in the U.K. It’s highly unlikely that we’ll bump into one as they are native to the Americas.

But if we were to see this disabled armadillo on our travels or in the zoo we probably wouldn’t forget about him any time soon.

That’s because the armadillo struts around with little wheels attached to him.

The paraplegic possum, from Brazil, lost the use of its hind legs so now needs aid to help him walk.

The five-month-old creature, called Bolinha, has been kitted out with a pair of toy wheels and he looks seriously cool.

Bolinha was given a makeshift wheelchair to survive after almost starving to death in the wild where he lost the use of his hind legs.

He’s been given a new lease of life in the form a custom-made wheelchair by vets in Brazil.

The wheels are attached to spokes which are strapped to his body with string and elastic bands.

The makeshift device has been designed to support the tiny armoured possum’s disabled legs.

With his new cart, the little mammal is now able to shuffle around independently in the dirt and scavenge for food.
