Comments / pictures

Origin from Tha province. Mosha was injured by landmine when she was only seven months old back in 2006. Mosha is the first elephant ever to receive and use a prosthetic leg functionally.

Almost half of the leg was amputed.







All the creation, designs and all the sockets of Motala's and Mosha's prosthetic legs have been created and made in Thailand by Assoc. Prof. Dr. Therdchai Jivacate and his team from day one in 2008 on.
