A YouTuber is gaining popularity on social media after constructing artificial legs for a snake to help it walk.
On Saturday, Allen Pan posted a video to his YouTube page explaining his engineering approaches. Mr Pan is a content creator that uses technological know-how to create homemade exoskeletons, battlebots, and other inventions that attract millions of views online on a regular basis.
“Giving snakes their legs back,” he wrote while sharing the post.
The YouTuber stated that the effort was created to demonstrate that he is a “snake lover.” Mr Pan’s radical new invention – a set of robot legs that equip snakes with the limbs that biology has unjustly denied them – is winning hearts online.
Mr Pan, who we previously wrote about when he transformed himself into an exoskeleton-wearing swordfighter, argues that he has to surpass nature’s constraints once more by giving snakes new limbs to compensate for their vestigial legs being lost before birth, according to Yahoo News.
So far, the video has got over 2 million views and over 1.1 million likes. Many people have made surprise comments about the video in the post’s comment area, while others have written about snakes not having legs.
“Finally, someone cares enough to give the snakes their legs back,” wrote a user.
Another said, “The snake’s initial reluctance to metamorphosize is only logical. There is always a moment of uncertainty before becoming the most powerful version of oneself.“
