RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - A Brazilian bird with a broken beak finally catches a break and some shrimp.
When researchers found Tieta at an animal fair in Rio de Janeiro, the upper part of her beak was busted, likely by wildlife traffickers. That forced her to be dependent on humans for food.
But biologists gave Tieta a new lease on life when they used a 3D printer to create a prosthetic. They say it took the toucan about three days to learn how to use her new nose and now it's like it was never gone.
