Turtle Romance thanks to her new wheels!

There is hope for us all !

Arava the disabled turtle is using her new set of wheels to get around in more ways than one.

Arava the tortoise has been fitted with a skateboard and has it strapped to her back. No one in Jerusalem dreams this would be all she would need to finally find romance!

Arava a 55 pound tortoise suffers from paralysis of her hind legs, so zoo keepers at the Jerusalem Biblical Zoo have fitted her with a specially designed skateboard. The staff customized a metal board with two wheels that can be strapped to her stomach.

When Arava arrived in Jerusalem a few months ago from a petting zoo in southern Israel she found no reptile romance. Now it seems there is a certain unnamed male that has the hots for her !

Check out Arava and her new wheels.
