Cue the Chamillionaire jokes: A squirrel who lost his front paws in a trap is running free again thanks to a set of prosthetic wheels.
Armless Squirrel Outfitted With Prosthetic Wheels & OMG, Science Is ~Awesome~
Nutty stuff, right?
According to reports, the critter — since named Karamel because d'awww — was found badly injured after he got pinned under the downbar of a wild animal trap.
But rather than euthanize tiny Karamel, orthopedists at Istanbul's Aydin University designed and fabricated a spring-loaded prosthesis that wraps around his squirrel-sized torso.
And while the road back to mobility wasn't without a speed bump or two ....
.... it didn't take long for Karamel to master his fancy new whip.
Not all that surprisingly, the furry amputee has emerged as something of a legend on Twitter, where animal lovers have been loudly proclaiming their fandom.
