picture of the day

Mosha the elephant has been fitted with a prosthetic leg in Lampang, Thailand, after losing a limb when she stepped on a landmine. story here.

This video is a trailer for a documentary called The Eyes of Thailand, "the inspirational story of one woman's quest to help two elephant landmine survivors, Motala and Baby MOsha walk on their own four legs. Treating their wounds was only part of the journey; building elephant-sized prostheses was another."

  1. Hi, Maura,

    Thanks for posting the picture of Mosha at the Friends of the Asian Elephant (FAE) Elephant Hospital. I first met her in 2007 when she was still hobbling about on 3 legs. In August 2009, I returned to FAE to film her and Motala, a 48-yr old elephant landmine survivor, walk on their prostheses for my documentary "The Eyes of Thailand". If you'd like to check out the trailer, please visit:

    Thanks so much for sharing the picture. Mosha is a sweetheart!
