An Artificial Prosthesis For An Alligator
Here is Mister Stubbs. This is the first alligator of its kind to receive a prosthesis. His tail was torn while fighting with another fellow alligator.
Since this accident his life had been confined outside the water. However, Mr. Stubbs has again regained the pleasures of swimming and water. A company called Herpetological in Phoenix has developed this prosthesis. The experts have crafted an artificial tail using Latex and Silicone. Obviously, Mr. Stubbs has to get used to swim with his new tail, but once he manage to understand the mechanism, it will again be able to move through the water as fast as his peers.
