Chhouk the elephant
Thanks to his jumbo-sized prosthetic foot, Chhouk the baby elephant has learned to walk again.
After he had gotten caught in a poacher's snare as an orphaned toddler, Chhouk was found by conservationists roaming alone in the forests of Cambodia, front foot still caught in a painful snare, severely malnourished and barely able to stand.
Though veterinarians couldn't save his foot, they were able to fit him with a pachyderm-sized prosthetic. Today Chhouk is putting his best foot forward — along with his new artificial foot — and is developing into a healthy adult.
