A chestnut-eared aracari, a type of Toucan, had his life saved thanks to the ingenuity of scientists, surgeons and a 3D printing artist. Tuc Tuc the Toucan was found injured on a street in Brazil missing a large portion of his lower beak. Cicero Moraes took a mold of the toucan’s beak and then got to work 3D printing a new one. It took two hours to surgically attach the prosthetic beak to the bird. Tuc Tuc wouldn’t be able to survive without receiving a new beak, and now he’ll live out the rest of his days at a comfy Brazilian animal shelter.
