A turtle that had been injured and had a customized wheelchair built for it from Legos has been released into the wild.

Dubbed "Lego turtle," the male Eastern box turtle had been in the care of the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore. It was released Wednesday morning in the city's Druid Hill Park, and with a transmitter on its back officials said they'll be able to keep tabs on it in its native habitat.

The turtle's tale started two years ago, when it was found by a zoo employee in the park and brought to the facility. The turtle had a broken shell and underwent surgery that involved placing metal bone plates, sewing clasps and surgical wire to keep its shell held together.
