‘Mosha’ is not just a name of any ordinary elephant but the one who was behind the whole journey of Elephant Parade. It was the year 2006 when traveler father and son Marc and Mike Spits visited Thailand and saw a baby elephant who had lost her leg in a landmine blast while walking near the Burmese border. Mosha inspired Marc and Mike to create Elephant Parade. With the initiative of them, Mosha was able to walk on the Prosthetic leg but it was not that easy because elephants grow every year up to 20 years of age. These new fittings are a large effort and expense as they require continued pioneering in a new area of elephant and veterinary medicine.
Mosha was the first elephant in the world to receive and use a prosthetic leg functionally. Mosha now living in FAE Hospital (Friends of an Asian Elephant), the world’s First Elephant Hospital.
