Woman Performs Surgery On A Butterfly With Broken Wings – And It Worked!

Despite having no medical expertise, she was able to perform a successful wing transplant.

Monarch butterflies are perhaps one of the most interesting species, with wings that seem to be a work of art. They can only live from two weeks to five months the most. Apparently, there was a certain butterfly on a brink of death. It basically came into this world with a defected wing.

Romy McCloskey vowed to raise three monarch butterflies, but one of these creatures had a problem on its wings. Determined he could save it, Romy turned her home into a mini operating room. She even used common household items in performing a wing transplant. Yes, that’s right – a wing transplant!

What is more interesting is the fact that Romy had no medical expertise whatsoever. She was a “professional costume designer and master hand embroiderer,” though. Still, she managed to make the operation successful.

Scroll down and check out the photos to see how the surgery went!

Some of Romy’s supplies included a wire hanger, a cotton swab, a toothpick, contact cement, scissors, and tweezers.

The extra wing was taken from another butterfly that died days before.

Since butterflies have no pain receptors, drugging was not necessary.

Romy described the entire operation as somewhat similar to cutting and/or trimming nails.

Thanks to her steady hands and patience, the little creature’s wings were fixed.

Although the design of the wings did not match, the creature should have no problems flying.

After a day of rest and “homemade honey” buffet, the butterly finally flew.

Romy let the creature flew by itself and wished it “good luck.” The operation was indeed a success – a huge one actually!

Well, what do you think about Romy’s surgery skills? Let us know what you think in the comments below!

Well as it looks like, we have another person to add to that list. Meet Britanny Bowman, a backpacker from Los Angeles who has been going around South East Asia. Recently, she stopped by Chiang Mai, Thailand – a place popular for having lots of monkeys.
