Albino alligator gets acupuncture in Brazil

Vets have used the ancient Asian practice of acupuncture to help the back problems of Bino the albino alligator at Sao Paulo Aquarium in Brazil.

Biologists say that acupuncture on animals is becoming increasingly common around the world.

Bino is regaining the use of his hind legs and tail thanks to what is expected to be a continuing course of treatment.
