A few animal rescuers found a turtle in Turkey whose beak was totally damaged by some boat’s propeller. The turtle seemed lifeless. But those good people fed it and saved it.
A turtle like this one, with no working beak, who has to be fed can’t be sent back to the wild just like that. It would die. So it was given a brand new 3D printed beak!
A company called BTech innovations used titanium and CT scans of the turtle’s beak area to create a personalized beak for it. It was then surgically attached to its face. And was then sent out to the wild.
