Have you ever seen things that really stir up your mind why it existed? There were really things that are unusual for us, where it is hard to explain, and all we can do is just accept it.

Birds are usually having four sharp claws which help them from getting their foods. Aside from the wings that are really essential for them, their claws are the one feeding their stomach and help them to perch on trees.

The California Wildlife Center recently rescued a mockingbird that was born with knuckling feet.

Based on the study, this condition might be congenital or a growth deformity when it was still on the egg. This bird, if not treated and just be left in the wild, will soon develop sores on its knuckling feet and possibly die.

A group of veterinarian decided to help the little creature. They created tiny customized snowshoes that served as the base for the bird’s feet out of cardboard and tape. After which, the feet of the bird finally stretch out. They still have to keep the bird for further observation until the time that it can properly use its feet to live normally in the wild.
