3D Printing builds beaks, fins and tails for wildlife

OK, this isn’t strong on broadband, but I always like to share something fun over a holiday weekend and I just love this. Roaring Earth reports…

Each of these animals survived horrific injuries and were left without the means to eat, drink, or walk. Thankfully, dedicated caretakers and 3D printing technology have provided them with the means to start new lives with cutting-edge prosthetics. Scroll down to check out these amazing creatures!

And then goes on to tell the story of an elephant, bald eagle, sea turtle, toucan, duck, dolphin and more had their lives made better with 3D printing. It’s worth a quick look at the article for some happy pictures.
