Bird gets new beak thanks to 3D printing

Posted:

A toucan in Brazil got a new beak thanks to a 3D printer.

Tieta the toucan was missing about half of her upper beak when she was found at an animal fair in Rio de Janeiro.

It's believed the toucan was mistreated by wildlife traffickers.

It took researchers a couple months to design the new beak using a 3D printer but it only took Tieta three days to get used to it.
