    Happy Place: Elephant Gets Prosthetic Leg
    Mosha, the three legged elephant, longs for the days of walking on all fours. Hopefully this three-day-old elephant from a German zoo will be able to keep all of its limbs.

    You can only check the Dow so many times, kids! Here's a story that'll get your blood pressure hovering near normal:

    A seven-month-old elephant in Thailand named Mosha was just hanging out, adorably blowing water out her trunk and batting her gigantic eyelashes at passersby, when the poor thing stepped on a landmine and lost part of her leg. Since the accident, the folks at the Friends of the Asian Elephant hospital in Lampang have been hard at work on a solution and now, Mosha is the proud owner of a prosthetic limb.

    We heard about it via Guanabee, where there's also some crazy cute video of Mosha trying out her new leg.
