There have been many unintentional tragedies caused by land mines. Motala is an elephant who lost one of her front legs when she stepped on a land mine.
If this was 20 years ago, Motala would have needed to spend the rest of her life in agony without her leg and nothing to help her walk.
The first prosthetic elephant leg was created from the people at the Asian Elephant Foundation. Nobody else has ever made one of these before.
The foundation led by Dr. Therdchai Jivacate, first helped Mosha the elephant, who lost her leg the same way as Motala and she became second elephant on the planet to have a prosthetic leg. Her life was changed completely.
Watch the video to see how Motala moves around with her new leg.
